CF card reader - troubles finding SCISI dev it's on


This is a problem my friend is having. She has a compact flash reader and would like to mount it to /mnt/removable.

Here at home this is a simple;

# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/removable


but she gets;

# /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device

------------------------------------------------

Here at home I figured out what dev to mount because it showed up at the bottom of dmesg but hers does not show any scsi device information.

Her motherboard has raid if that helps any (IDE Raid).

Im out of ideas.


We're both running RH8.0 out of the box.

USB device? Check dmesg for any USB messages? Does USB mass storage module load. What USB and SCSI modules are being loaded.

Doesn't it show up in the "Hardware Browser?"

Check System Tools > Hardware Browser > Hard Drives.

My Sandisk SDDR-09 shows up under /dev/sda1.

cdrecord -scanbus (as root) should also show it up.

I plug the reader (with CF card already in it) and get this i dmesg:

# dmesg
.....
hub.c: USB new device connect on bus1/1, assigned device number 4
WARNING: USB Mass Storage data integrity not assured
USB Mass Storage device found at 4

Then I did what you said with cdrecord;

[root@amazon bkeating]# cdrecord --scanbus
Cdrecord 1.10 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2001 J?rg Schilling
