Are you trying to mount /dev/sda, or /dev/sda1? /dev/sda is the device, but the partitions each get a number, so you need to mount /dev/sda1 (assuming it only has one partition) instead of just /dev/sda.

Re: Dazzle Card Reader

Mike,

I have the same card and reader and am unable to mount the disk in Windows. So it sounds like a hardware problem. Here's someone who was having a problem with this combo last year.

I see you posted last month. Have you been able to resolve the issue since?

-ks

Well, nevermind. Rebooting twice did the trick, somehow.
