My new computer runs Slack10.1, almost everything seems to work properly, but something's wrong and I can't understand why.
This is annoying me 'coz the whole system should be up.
The USB removable storage system is one of those stuff.
The situation is:
1) there's a SATA hard disk recognized as /dev/sda;
2) using dmesg I found out that the USB port I'd like to use is recognized as /dev/sdb1;
3) fstab shows the following line in order to load USB pendrive:
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/pendrive vfat noauto,user,iocharset=iso8859-15,umask=000,rw,exec 0 0;
4) the specified error comes up if the filesystem is set as "vfat" either set as "auto".
I was just having the same problem getting the "not a valid block device" error when trying to mount my camera(Olympus C-740 Ultra Zoom). By switching to another usb port it allowed me the mount the camera for some reason. It was on a HP pavilion zt1135 running Debian Sarge.
