I have a 3TB raid, which was made originally with OPEN MEDIA VAULT, a media server. I have recently uninstalled OPEN MEDIA VAULT from the server and installed ubuntu 13.10.

The only problem I'm having is that I can't mount the raid disks and I DON"T want to lose the data at all, it's all my vital information.

Here's what I've tried:

mkdir /media/3TBRaid
// And then the mount command
sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/sdd/ /media/3TBRaid

This returns 'Mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdd, missing codepage or helper program, or other error. In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so'

I'm fairly new to LINUX in general, so please don't yell at me :)

The two drives, that I actually want to mount as one are device:

1: /dev/sdd
2. /dev/sdc

The type of both of these drives are 'linux_raid_member'

Could someone please help me on how to correctly mount the two drives as one without loosing my data?

as mount specified, something wrong with the FS(file system).

Try this: (It'll format the drive with ext4 format)

 mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdd 

If format successes
then try these mounting steps again

mkdir /media/3TBRaid
// And then the mount command
sudo mount /dev/sdd/ /media/3TBRaid

hope it helps .!!
