You need to be root on most systems to mount a device. I don't use Centos, if it uses sudo, than that will work also.

The above messages look like the device is seen on the USB bus. You can try the command 'lsusb' as root, to list the devices on the USB bus.

You can look at dmesg log as root user also for error information. For usb errors,

as root, run the command 'dmesg | grep usb' ( all commands without the quotes ).

The trick is to determine the device that gets created. Then you can use the mount command.

To mount a device, you need an empty directory. Most systems have a /media directory. Look there, mine looks like this:

Notice memory. This is where I mount memory sticks. When I plug in my memory stick, I get a message " Only root can mount /dev/sr1" This is what you need.

Now I log as root, and enter the command 'mount /dev/sr1 /media/memory/' and press enter. The memory stick will mount at /media/memory0/ Memory is a sym link to memory0. That is it, I can now read files from the stick, and wirte IF the device is mounted as R/W.

Cameras can be more difficult. Some will mount just like a memory stick. Some you need to go into the camera config and change the way they look at the USB connection.

If you can't get the camera to mount, post the make and model. Usually the user guide will tell you how to change the USB config on the camera.

What ever device you were plugging is not being recognized.

Do you know if either the camera or the memory stick will work on any other system?

Much of what is going on has to do with BIOS, and the USB drivers. I have looked into some problems like this before, and have found a few solutions. It may matter what order the low speed and high speed drivers are loaded. ( OHCI and EHCI ).

Try different USB ports on the system. Do they fail on all ports? I see you have USB keyboard, and mouse. Usually you have to set BIOS to talk to these devices. If you plug a PS/2 keyboard and mouse, do the devices that fail work?

Just some thoughts, these are not easy problems to resolve. You could also try a different distro as a live CD and see if the devices work, or not.

Do you know if these devices work on other systems? You may have broken hardware.

There isn't anything in the BIOS settings to make this work. When you plug in a device, the BIOS code reads data from the device to determine what it is. If that process fails, you either have bad hardware, system or device, or there is a bug in the BIOS code on your system.

You can look at the manufacturers site to see if there is a BIOS update. Sometimes there is, and an update may fix the problem.
