I was getting a similar error:
# mount /dev/sdb1 /mydisk/ -t auto
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
I tried finding out the issue and the issue was, I had partitioned it but no
filesystem was assigned.
# mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb1 2>/dev/null

Superblock backups stored on blocks:

Writing inode tables: done
Creating journal (32768 blocks): done
Writing superblocks and filesystem accounting information: done

This filesystem will be automatically checked every 39 mounts or
180 days, whichever comes first. Use tune2fs -c or -i to override
After this it successfully got mounted.

You need to add the -t FILESYSTEMTYPE argument to the command, replacing
FILESYSTEMTYPE with your filesystem type. This specifies the filesystem type of
the filesystem to be mounted. In your case, this would be /dev/sdb2. Some
common, valid filesystem types are:
* auto – this is a special one. It will try to guess the fs type when you
use this.
* ext4 – this is probably the most common Linux fs type of the last few
years
* ext3 – this is the most common Linux fs type from a couple years back
* ntfs – this is the most common Windows fs type or larger external hard
drives
* vfat – this is the most common fs type used for smaller external hard
drives
* exfat – is also a file system option commonly found on USB flash drives
and other external drives

Please use parted -l to check the partition type and make sure you are mounting
an actual data partition with known partition types (for example, ntfs, fat,
etc).
Here is what you would see from an 8TB drive, the first partition is not the
actual data partition and instead, you should mount the second partition, which
is the actual data partition.
