Error Message TBIMount won't restart-SOLVED

Postby ronk » Sat Feb 25, 2012 1:37 pm

Used IFD to Store 3 partitions in 1 image on a 32gb flash drive formatted fat32. Started TBIMount 1.06 and successfully inspected 1 of the 3. Then closed the mount successfully, went to mount another of the 3 and a message indicated 'TBIMount Service cannot be started. Please start the service as Administrator. Please try again.' ??? I am logged on as administrator on this XP laptop, Have never encountered this before. Tried closing TBIMount, restarting, but no go. Works fine after a reboot (mounting the partition I couldn't before), but certainly don't expect to have to do that each time unmounting and mounting a different partition!

After the reboot, successfully used TBIMount for one of the 3 partitions, unmounted it, and then got the same error when mounting a different partition. How do I reset the TBIMount service that isn't cleaning up itself? I checked with process explorer, and no vestige of terabyte svcs running (other than phylock). Have tried stopping restarting TBIMount, logging off, logging on, to no avail. Only reboot clears up mounting a 2nd partition in a 3 partition image.

Any ideas why? :?

TBIMount 1.06, IFL/IFD 2.69 on Win XP SP3.

Thanks,

Ron

Re: Error Message on 2nd Mount with TBIMount

XP does do that sometimes, the answer is reboot since there is no way to
clear it. However, you can change the tbimount service to start
automatically so that it doesn't try to start/stop (of course you can mount
more than 1 at a time too - it will only stop it if it started it and only
stops after list one unmounted). Or manually start it with "net start
tbimount" as an administrator before launching.

OK, I will opt for the 2nd option of a run command, since reboot is 2 minutes give or take. Strange, this is the first TBIMOUNT version (going way back) that I have had this error.

Thanks,

TBIMount gives the error when attempting a mount of TBIMount unable to start a service. So then I try what you suggested, and I am unable to use 'net start tbimount' since indicates file not found. running net start does not list tbimount as a service. I really do not wish to have to mount w/o having to reboot each time. I have no idea why this is happening for the first time after many years on XP working fine.

I even validated the partitions with IFD successfully,....still no go on mounting any of the Flash Drive partitions. Very troubling if I have to reboot. So you think XP for some reason is causing this problem now after 5 years w/o issue?

I did find I can mount multiple partitions, as long as at least 1 is still mounted. Once the last mount is unmounted, TBIMount service is dead, and I don't know how to restart it successfully w/o rebooting.

Any more help or ideas on this? :cry:

David F. helped to resolve this. For some reason, the tbimount service would not restart after being used once. So had to set it to autostart with bootup and stay up by using regedit at HKLM/System/CurrentControlSet/Services/tbimount and changing tag 'START' from a value of '3' to '2'. It keeps the service up. Hopefully no disruption to anything else will occur by doing this.
