I'm trying to use my USB memory stick on a PC with Fedora Core. I looked for the information and found some advice. According to it I did the next things:
I typed the line:
Then I created a subdirectory in the /mnt directory:
I opened the file /etc/fstab and added the next line:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usbstick vfat user,noauto,umask=0 0 0
Then in a second terminal window I typed:
tail -s 3 -f /var/log/messages
I plugged in the USB memory stick and typed the next:
According to the instructions, the memory drive icon had to appear on the desktop. But didn't appear. The messages in the second terminal window were like this:
kernel: Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
kernel: usbcore: registered new driver usb-storage
kernel: USB Mass Storage support registered
kernel: ehci_hcd 0000:00:02.1: port 2reset error -110
kernel: hub 1-0:1.0: hub_port_status failed (err=-32)
kernel: hub 1-0:1.0: cannot enable port 2. Maybe the USB cable is bad?
Does anybody know what is my problem? I don't have any skills in Linux, so, please, explain me what I'm doing wrong as simple as possible.
