all variants Can I use ext4 on hardy Ubuntu Forums

Hi… I am currently using LinuxMint 5 (based on the might Hardy Heron) and I have aquired a hdd formatted in ext4 with some data I would like to upload to my computer. I can’t seem to access the drive what so ever.

my sudo fdisk -l for the drive looks like:

Disk /dev/sdc: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00019e6a

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdc1               1       60801   488384001   83  Linux

Trying to open the hdd I get:

Cannot mount volume
The volume 'Videos' uses the ext4 file system which is not supported by your system.

Gparted is being of no help either.

After using bootable usb key with Jaunty and did the switcharoo is solved the problem.
