When i try to mount an external HDD of a friend of mine,this error is all over my screen.It shows a lot of errors which are unfamiliar to me ,but onething i know , it has many bad sectors in it.
I have ran into these errors pretty often.I have seen this whenever i tried to mount a faulty or bad or storage device.But it never occured to me until recently that what does these numbers represent in the error i.e [ 4200.237911 ] i.e what does they try to convey ?
does this represent any sector no: or anything similar ? Is there any particular name for this [4200.237911 ] ? I wanted to know more about it since i occasionally ran into this (even though unmounting the disk will solve the problem).can anybody enlighten me on this topic ?
atlast what does i/o buffer error stand for ?
