Wink How do I go into my External Firewire HDD?


Hi,

I have an external enclosure device which can connect to USB2 or Firewire, I have a firewire card installed and I plus in the device on that.

I don't know how to access my external drive, be it in USB or Firewire.

Thanks.

Cheers!

A little more information is required?

What distro are you using?
Is the firewire module being loaded?
/sbin/lsmod

Have you looked at the output of dmesg. See any messages on the drive.

linux firewire information:
http://www.linux1394.org/index.html

lnux USB information:
http://www.linux-usb.org/

There are lots of posts on accessing a USB drive in linux. Have you seached this website yet?

Assuming that you do not have any other SCSI devices your drive will be /dev/sda.

Hi,

Sorry I did not mentioned, I am using Red Hat 9.0. On the out put of dmesg I got all the following, in which we can see my Firewire is recognized no problems, I don't have a problem with my USB since my scanner and my sandisk card reader are working fine, I just did not know how to access my external HDD, to get to my ZIP or my floppy, I conveniently right click on the screen and then I get the option to get them visible on the screen and then I can just access them. It is not the same with this external disk.

But if this is covered I will dig it up.

cheers!

Accessing the firewire drive will the the same as the USB or SCSI drives.
It looks like you have:
/dev/sda - Seagate hard drive
/dev/sdb - Iomega Zip drive
/dev/sdc - Card reader
/dev/sdd - fireware drive.

If the drive was not automatically configured you can add an entry in the /etc/fstab file and create a directory i.e. mkdir /mnt/firewire to mount the drive.
