Unable to mount external encrypted drive?


Recommended Posts

I'm having a very weird issue.


I've encrypted a 5TB USB drive on my computer with LUKS


sudo cryptsetup luksFormat /dev/sda1


And it works great on my computer. But when I plug in into my Helios64 and try to use it:


sudo cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda1 secret
Enter passphrase for /dev/sda1:
No key available with this passphrase.


It just refuses. And if I try to encrypt the drive from the Helios64 using cryptsetup it never finishes, the command runs forever.

Anyone had similar issues? Any ideas?
