Thread: Mount error for USB memory sticks

  1. Mount error for USB memory sticks

    Hi, for USB memory stick
    I recompiled the kernel to include modules usb-uhci, usbcore, usb-storage and scsi_mod.
    When I do "lsmod", I can see:

    [root@bird /root]# lsmod
    Module Size Used by
    vfat 9808 0 (autoclean)
    fat 30560 0 (autoclean) [vfat]
    usb-storage 20816 0
    scsi_mod 51680 1 [usb-storage]
    usb-uhci 21376 0 (unused)
    usbcore 30048 0 [usb-storage usb-uhci]

    When I did "cat /proc/scsi/scsi" I had,
    Attached devices:
    Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
    Vendor: Gripio Model: MassStroage Disk Rev: 2000
    Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02

    But when I tried to mount I had this error;

    mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb_memstick
    mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device

    What else should I do?

    Did you try mounting other devices, such as /dev/sda0, /dev/scd0, /dev/scd1,
    /dev/sr0, /dev/sr1? For instance, the usb cdrom writer appears as scd0 on my
    Slackware 8.1 system. My internal cdrom appears as /dev/hdc.

    Also, look at /proc/bus/usb/devices and you can tell whether or not the
    device is actually assigned a driver. If recognized the device will be
    listed and the driver, such as usb-storage, if assigned will be at the end
    of on of the lines pertaining to the device.

    mount -t outo /dev/sda /mnt/usb_memstick
