Full Version: Usb Pendrive

I am trying unsuccessfully to mount a Sony 128MB pendrive using SuSE 9.1. When I cat /proc/bus/usb/devices, it shows up fine:

T: Bus=03 Lev=02 Prnt=09 Port=00 Cnt=01 Dev#= 10 Spd=480 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 2.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=054c ProdID=008b Rev= 0.01
S: Manufacturer=Sony
S: Product=USB Mass Storage Device
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=c0 MxPwr= 0mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=08(stor.) Sub=05 Prot=50 Driver=usb-storage
E: Ad=01(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms
E: Ad=82(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms

The usb-storage module is loaded (confirmed by lsmod), but has no references.

I guess that the device should then be available under /dev/sda[some number]. However, when I cat /dev/sda[0-9] all I get is 'no medium found.' I cannot mount it, and I get the same 'no medium found' when I try. I am pretty much of of ideas.

Thanks in advance,

I finally found my issue. Most of the postings I was looking for help showed the pendrive showing up under /dev/sda. I looked at the output of the command 'tail /var/log/messages -f' and found watched when inserting the pen drive. It turns out that under SuSE 9.1 it apparently ends up as /dev/sde. I changed my fstab line for the pen drive and voila! It mounted fine.
