Can't mount to external firewire drive


I was able to mount this drive (2 partitions) for a couple of years until recently. I get the following error when I try to mount to the first partition of the drive "mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device" as well as "mount: /dev/sda2 is not a valid block device" for the second partition.

/var/log/message:

I've already tried to restart the system and reset the firewire cable and no dice. I'm running Slackware 10.0 with kernel 2.4.26. Could it be the firewire cable?

I fixed it!

Running a script to rescan scsi bus fixed it after a reboot.

You can Google for rescan-scsi-bus.sh to get a copy of the script.
