This question is answered as part of the answer to other questions, but it deserves canonical treatment here so it does not have to keep being repeated.
You can't mount the image as a whole because it actually contains two partitions and a boot sector. However, you can mount the individual partitions in the image if you know their offset inside the file. ...
/dev/mmcblk0p2 is the root file system, so it is not easily unmounted. It could probably be re-mounted as read-only, but a simpler way is to schedule a fsck at the next reboot.
sudo touch /forcefsck
then reboot. Or reboot with
shutdown -rF now
which does the same.
losetup provides partition probing through -P. Using this makes mounting partitions of a full disk image such as the Raspbian SD card image very easy:
losetup -P /dev/loop0 raspbian.img
mount /dev/loop0p2 /mnt
mount /dev/loop0p1 /mnt/boot
Disk drives are distinguished by their UUID(universally unique identifier).
You can find the UUID of your HDs with the command ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid/
Then you must create the mount points sudo mkdir /MOUNT/POINT1
and change the permissions of them sudo chmod 775 /MOUNT/POINT1
Then you add a line to your fstab file (which is located at /etc/fstab) wich ...
After alot of research I could fix my Problem with usbmount:
Adding ntfs to usbmount
Install usbmount with sudo apt-get install usbmount.
Install NTFS driver package ntfs-3g with sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g.
Configure usbmount to mount specified filesystems by opening the usbmount file with sudo nano /etc/usbmount/usbmount.conf.
In here there is a line ...
Type n to create a new partition.
Type p to make a primary partition.
Next press enter when prompted for a partition number to choose the next available.
Press enter again to pick the next available sector to start the partition.
Press enter again to use all of the remaining disk space.
Type w to save the changes.
Put it in fstab.
echo "//timeCapsuleIp/Data /mnt/timecapsule cifs user=timecapsuleUsername,pass=timecapsuleUserPassword,rw,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0" >> /etc/fstab
Required cifs-utils package should be already provided on raspbian.
Of course change timecapsuleUsername and timecapsuleUserPassword. The uid=...
The Hard Way
Read my other answer on Is it possible to update, upgrade and install software before flashing an image?.
You need to calculate the offset of the filesystem you wish to mount.
The Easy, yet experimental way
Consider using my new utility piimg. Just build and run
$ sudo ./piimg mount archlinuxarm-13-06-2012.img /mnt
NOTE This hasn't been ...
Found this article -> Mount a Raspberry Pi SD card on a Mac (read-only) with osxfuse and ext4fuse, It worked like a charm.
Here is the commands I ran om my mac:
brew cask install osxfuse
brew install ext4fuse
sudo mkdir /Volumes/rpi
sudo ext4fuse /dev/disk2s2 /Volumes/rpi -o allow_other
sudo cp /Volumes/rpi/home/pi/Pictures/* /Users/me/work/raspi/Pix/
try reversing the slashes and pointing to the root mnt folder
sudo mount -t cifs -o username=USERNAME,password=PASSWORD //192.168.2.12/TestShare /mnt/
if your password or username contains special characters try simplifying them.
If you're interested in the drives mounting automatically when you plug them in then you can try installing usbmount:
sudo apt-get install usbmount
When you insert a flash drive it will detect and mount it to /media/usb[0-7] and will unmount it when it is removed.
You will want to edit your /etc/usbmount/usbmount.conf
To configure automounting as ...
Raspbian 5/5/2015, the version I am working with, comes with read support for NTFS. Presumably earlier versions over the past year or two probably have this as well, but much past 2 years, I don't think they do.
On a default install of Raspbian, the OS will automount your NTFS drive as read-only to /media with the NTFS volume name as a folder name. This ...
After plugging in your flashdrive. Run the following command:
grep "SCSI removable disk" /var/log/messages
you should see something like the following
Jun 16 23:48:58 raspberrypi kernel: sd 2:0:0:0: [sda] Attached SCSI
The important part is the bit in the square brackets, in this case "sda"
next enter the following command to create a ...
The system is intended to log data to a FAT32 USB stick, which may be unplugged, replugged or replaced at any time.
The unplugged part of that is problematic. AFAIK, no computer system anywhere promises you the right to yank a USB stick out unannounced at any point without potential problems. So you will have to think about how to get around that.
This is strictly a generic Linux question, but the answer anyway is partition UUIDs (Universally Unique Identifiers). Like the name says on the tin, when a partition is formatted, a random unique ID is generated that describes it. You can use this to mount to ensure that you always get the correct partition. The blkid command gives a list of UUIDs for ...
While I don't have Arch Linux to check if this, it's probably mounted by kernel itself and never remounted. You can check your /proc/cmdline and you should see something like root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 and rootfstype=ext4 options. You can set them in /boot/cmdline.txt file. First one specifies which device (partition) should be mounted as root device, second one ...
There are a few things that you need to do to get this to work. First, after physically connecting the drive, run dmesg to see the name of the node in /dev. You should find something like this:
[ 5155.744879] usb-storage 1-1.4.3:1.0: USB Mass Storage device detected
[ 5155.753654] scsi host1: usb-storage 1-1.4.3:1.0
[ 5157.013418] scsi 1:0:0:0: Direct-...
So, I found a solution that works quite well. Big thanks to avanc and his udev rule that makes this possible. I also modified it so that it could mount up to 4 flash drives at the same time (it can be increased if needed).
Install pmount if not installed sudo apt-get install pmount
This script mounts drives to /media/usb*, so make sure those ...
My version based on the answer above:

Should I be concerned about any particular type of wood when working with electronics?
Not really. As long as it is dry, you keep some clearance between the wood and Pi, and you do not completely seal of the enclosure you should be fine.
Is there any mounting plates I'll need for the monitor/Raspberry Pi 3?
Not sure about the monitor but if you want to ...
I got adding sec=ntlm to the options, the complete command is:
echo "//timeCapsuleIp/Data /mnt/timecapsule cifs user= timecapsuleUsername,pass= timecapsuleUserPassword,rw,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0" >> /etc/fstab
Then, run this command:
You should no get any errors.
Update for users of Raspberry Stretch v9. Note the addition of vers=1.0
//IPofTimeCapsule/PathWithinYourTimeCapsule /mnt/TimeCapsule cifs username=insert,password=insert,rw,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm,vers=1.0 0 0
I was having this problem too (unable to mount Windows shares at boot). I found an option in the Raspberry Pi Configuration tool that fixed my problem.
1) Start X Windows (startx from terminal shell).
2) Click "Menu" button
3) Select Preferences->Raspberry Pi Configuration
4) Select the System tab
5) There is an option called "Network at Boot". Check the ...
Here's how I did it yesterday on Raspbian:
Create a directory /etc/samba/credentials
Create a file /etc/samba/credentials/myserver
In the myserver file, put the credentials for that server:
Note: spaces are important here – don’t use " = ", use "=".
# chown -R root.root /etc/samba/credentials
# chmod 700 /etc/samba/...
I faced the same issue with Raspberry Pi 4 and Raspbian Buster, the solution for me was to modify the following file:
Then I rebooted and it was OK ;)
There are quite a few posts raising pretty much the same issues as yours I believe. Here are a couple. Most advice that you make 100% sure your power supply suffices RPI and the HDD needs. Not only your HDD needs to be supplied enough power but the RPI, too.
Disconnect everything from the RPI, leaving just the network and the HDD and see how this helps.
