    from a 30 Gig to a 120 Gig. This process went great. I have taken the drive out, put it back in the TiVo and the system works fine. Now I want to do some more hacks like TiVoWeb and FTP. So I take the drive and put it back in the pc. I have the new 120g drive on hdb, jumpered to slave. I use PTVUpgrade's boot CD and/or MFSTools 2.0 CD. This is where I hit a snag. I cannot mount the hdb4, hdb7, or hdb9 drives.

    Using the following commands:

    PTVupgrade /# mkdir /mnt4
    PTVupgrade /# mkdir /mnt7
    PTVupgrade /# mkdir /mnt9
    and when trying to mount the drives this is the sequence:

    PTVupgrade /# mount /dev/hdb4 /mnt4
    /dev/hdb4: Success
    mount: you must specify the filesystem
    And, of course I cannot access the mounts (I cannot see any files and folders when doing an ls on them)

    Any suggestions?

    Thank You,
