Mounting Pen Drive


Hey,
I work on FC 2. I have a UMAX Apus 240 Pen drive. Was wondering how to mount it. Will linux autodetect it like in windows ?

You haven't told us what distro you're using. Some of them come preconfigured and some don't. In any case you could just try it and see.

If it doesn't work automatically, take a look at this page: http://www.cs.sfu.ca/%7Eggbaker/personal/cf-linux

That info should let you set up support. After that, an fstab entry will make it easy for you (or file browser programs like konqueror) to manually mount the device. If you want true automounting, you'll have to configure whatever auto-mount device your system uses (autofs, supermount).

Edit: Whoops, sorry you did mention FC2. Missed that. I haven't used FC myself, so I can't say anything about it.

It is probably recognized as a scsi device.
Try mounting
/dev/sda1 /mnt
or /dev/sdb /mnt
or even just /dev/sda
sdb or /sdc

lol ...

Anyways, when I was working with command-line sarge debian, it would tell me verbally whever I inserted or removed a hot-swappable device. It just might tell you what device it assigned it too if you're in a bash shell. Actually, I doubt it unless you're not in X. But I dunno. Just try it and see. USB memory devices have always been close to linux's heart, so it'll probably do something nice when you insert it

Thanx guys for the help. I just connected the pen drive on the fly and linux handled it very smoothly.
