Unable to open /dev/sda
i had a similar problem with my usb flash drive, then i first formatted it form windows with the software that came along with it, then fdisk /dev/sda and mkdosfs. now it works perfectly. it didn't work if i formatted it with the windows utility.
i think that if i can find a program to format the usb hd diferent from the winXP utility i can make it work, any suggestion?
ps:sg3-utils doesnėt work.
