I'm experiencing a problem with TrueCrypt. The problem is described elsewhere but not resolved for me.
When attempting to mount encrypted containers, the following error is generated:
hdiutil: attach failed - no mountable file systems
Other resources indicate that the problem is related to the version of MacFUSE. I have tried a few versions but have been unable to find a pair that work for my system.
It would be great to:
- get any fix suggestions
- learn which version of MacFUSE is used successfully by someone in my situation.
- Mac OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard)
- Mac Mini 1.66Ghz Core Duo
- 2 GB RAM
- TrueCrypt 7.1A
After switching from MacFUSE to FUSE for OS X (OSXFUSE), as suggested in answers:
- TrueCrypt volumes could be mounted read only.
Attempts to mount with write access continued to fail with the above error. I can't be sure whether this is new since I changed over.
Read/write succeeds for a TrueCrypt container formatted as
Mac OS Extended.
The container I wish to open was originally created on a Windows system.
diskutil info describes it as
FAT16. The size of the container is
10.5 MB on disk when not mounted. When mounted as read only:
