Mounting (Connect) external disks in Ubuntu

Hi everyone,

Most of the present Ubuntu Operating Systems will auto-mount the internal/external disks.

In some cases that may not be done automatically. In that situation, you can manually mount the media to the Ubuntu.

Here comes the mounting of external disks like HDD, Pen-drive etc in Ubuntu. 


1) Open terminal
2) Type sudo su in the terminal
3) Enter the password
4) Now you will be in super user mode i.e. # mode
5) Go to the desktop or some folder where you want to create a folder for mounting
    ex: # cd /home/user1/Desktop
6) Create a directory
    ex: # mkdir ExtrnDisk
7) Type the following command for NTFS disks
    # mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 ExtrnDisk/ (FAT32 -- vfat)

    Type the following for rest of the disks
    # mount /dev/sdb ExtrnDisk/
8) Now you can see the drive contents mounted to ExtrnDisk folder

Write Protect your pen drive from copying, deleting and etc.,

Hi everyone,

Today one of my friend asked me "Why I cann't copy the data to my USB Pendrive". It is showing message like "Remove the write-protection or use another disk". Can you help me to resolve? "

I just checked and came to know that, the pen drive is write protected. Only we can copy the content from pen drive but can't do deleting and copying to pen drive.

  • To remove the write protection, please follow the steps below.
  • Open run window by pressing windows + R or start->run
  • Type regedit.exe and click on "Ok" button or Press Enter button.
  • Please go to the following path
  • If there is no WriteProtect key, please create a DWord key with name WriteProtect
  • To enable write-protect, please give "1" as key value
  • To disable write-protect, double click the WriteProtect key and give value as 0 
Hope you will protect your pendrive.

File Magic Numbers in Header to differentiate between files

Hi everyone,
I just came to know about the file magic numbers

Its good that, we can identify the file by converting the file to ASCII even someone changes the file extension manually.

I personally tested this by creating one GIF file and saw the file ASCII values are starting with GIF89a.
Later I manually changed the file extension to JPEG and I verified the ASCII values surprised that still the file ASCII values aren't changed. Its GIF89a.

So, I understand one thing, that, if someone changes the file extension to some unknown type, we can easily find the original file extension by this method.

To see the file ASCII values, use hexdump tool.

See the screeshots

See the output ever after changing file extn

Copy Paste Pl/Sql developer queried table data and Auto Format the content

Paste and Auto-format Table records in Excel

While taking backup of the tables, we are doing the following steps.
1.       Executing the query
2.       Copying the content from pl/sql developer
3.       Opening excel and paste the copying content
4.       If we want multiple tables to take backup, we need select next sheet and paste the content
5.       If we need more than 3 sheets we are adding new sheets.
6.       Just copying content from the pl/sql developer doesn’t finish our work, am I right?
7.       We need to format the data too.

So, I just tried to create one auto-formatter which will paste the data and auto-format the data.

Please download the attachment and unzip the file.

After opening the excel file, do the following.

a) Please change the macro settings to "Disable all macros with notification"
     Note: To see how you can change the macro settings, please see the following link

b) Please click on the "User Friendly Formatter" button and follow the procedure.
c) It will open a new file and asks you to save the file.
d) Copy the content from pl/sql developer, when it displayed the following pop-up window.

e) The data will be auto formatted and then asks user for continuation by displaying the following window.

f) If user wants to continue, user can click “Yes” button, and the next sheet will be auto-selected.
g) Goto step (d)
h) When your clicks on “No” button, the file will be autosaved.

Please see the macro code and change according to your requirements.

4) Unmount the device file on which the pendrive mounted
   # umount /dev/sdb
   Note: Please change the sdb with your above identified device file
5) Now, we can format the pendrive

Thinkpad L412, L512 laptop review

Hi everyone,

If you are planning to buy Lenovo Thinkpad L412,L512.
Please comment, if someone experienced any problem with Thinkpad L412,L512.

As per my surfing, it doesn't have cons.
Only cons, they are talking about keyboard sound. That is standard in Thinkpad laptops.
Don't bother about anything. Whoever planning to buy, they can happily buy.

Thanks in advance

Personal Experience:
My laptop screen was gone after 4 months of time, they have replaced it.
Laptop is not responding after working 2 to 3 hours continuous. We have to forcefully shutdown and restart again. I think, some hardware issue.


Create own mouse pointers, fonts, window design etc.

Hi everyone,

I just came to know about windowing system, where we can draw our own mouse pointers, our own logos etc.

By using Desktop Environment, we can design, our own folders, icons, windows, wallpapers etc.

People who are interested in designing new OS can make use of this. May be after some time I will also try. Just go through this wiki link and if you are interested its really good.


Please let me know if someone is starting new Operation System. I will also contribute.

How word saves a file .. Procedure in saving the file in MSOffice

Hi everyone,

Procedure or steps in saving the file MSOffice
We created one file with name abc.doc
When we are update the abc.doc and trying to save it, Word will create the temporary file with edited version of the abc.doc
Word will delete the previous version of the abc.doc
Replaces the temporary file with the previous version of the abc.doc

Its so cool .. Data Integrity is satisfying .. What you people say?

File size increases when you are storing images. Cause and Solution listed

Hi everyone,
Just now, I came to know that MSOffice will store two types of graphic formats in .rtf file.

  1. What I did was, I copied one image (Size: 66.6KB) to MSWord and saved the file as .doc.
  2. The .doc file size has become 89KB.
  3. Then I saved the file in .rtf format.
  4. The .rtf file size is 5075KB(4.9MB).
  5. I just searched for the cause then I found that .rtf format file will save this image twice.
  6. One in corresponding .GIF, .JPEG or .PNG and second format is WMF(Windows Meta File).
  7. That is the cause for drastic change in file size.

To solve this problem, we can follow the steps accordingly in the below Microsoft link

Try to experiment and learn and post.

Test file formats and its actual size, size on disk, increment in size

I just thought what will be the default size for a text file in different formats.
Then I just did some analysis and found that these are the default sizes of the corresponding files, but actually on disk it will store this much size.

I found one more interesting point, for me atleast, the actual size is increasing on some increment basis, which is displayed in table as "Increment in bytes". Till that size on disk, the actual size is incrementing but size on disk is not changing.

What I understand from this is, In hard disk, file will get space according increment.

File Format Size stored on Disk Actual Size Increment in bytes
(MSOffice 97-2003 format)
28KB, 28672B 26KB, 26112B 512B
(MSOffice 2007 format)
12KB, 12888B 9.65KB, 9886B 1B
(Notepad format)
4KB, 4096B 0B 1B

If I'm wrong in any sentence, please let me know. I will try to update my knowledge.

Hi everyone,
I came to know that we can use command prompt in windows vista and windows 7 by installing dosbox software.
I tried in Windows XP .. Its not that much user friendly .. we need to mount the drives first then we have to use it. Please try in your system and let me know, how it worked for you.
Going to home for 10 days .. See you later .. Happy Dasara ..
