Flash memory and External HD doesnt show up in knoppix !


Hi,

when i plug my flash memory, and my external HD on my laptop, it don't respond. it have light on it and it doesnt work.

i have two partitions on my internal HD. XP and Fedora. hda1 , hda2.

i tried mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb1 /mnt
and
mount -t msdos /dev/sda1 /mnt

but nothing happen , its say bad superblock.

how can i know what /dev is used by the flash memory and the external HD, and mount them.

also for the NTFS file system , i read that knoppix have captive on it. i use the latest version of knoppix and i cant found it on it !

thankx alote

sorry for my English

i see two problems here:

Quote:

and
mount -t msdos /dev/sda1 /mnt
1st you are trying to mount two devices on the same mount point (/mnt). you can't do this. secondly the command for msdos should be:

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb

presuming you have created /mnt/usb 1st.

i also doubt that the usb device is being created as '/dev/hdb1'. i would get it would be something like /dev/sda1/2 or /dev/uba1/2

1/2 being 1 or 2.

when you plug them in try doing 'dmesg |tail'. one of the easiest ways to find out, if you are running udev, is to plug the device in and type 'ls -lsrt /dev/'. and you will get the name of the last created device...
