You need to set it up as a usb mass storage device, have a look at the following link for instructions.

But I can't connect to the server of www.linux-usb.org

Then you have a network problem, it still works fine for me.

Is it mount the '/dev/sda'?

Aussie 01-29-2004 08:55 AM

/dev/sda1 for the first partition - sda2 for the second, etc.

tx-cary 01-29-2004 10:04 PM

But when I plugin the harddisk, It can not find sda in /dev. But my usb flash disk can.

What exactly is the hardware that your trying to mount?

Look at the output of dmesg for messages on the hard drive.

Whatever USB drive the OS detects first will be /dev/sda, next will be /dev/sdb.

BTW what distro of linux are you running?

I am using mandrake linux 9.2, and kernel 2.6.1.
When I use the usbview, I can find the "mass storage..." device, but I can not find any device like sda, sdb... in /dev/

And, what is "dmesg"? how can i find it?

dmesg is a command you type at the console. It prints kernel messages to the standard output. It should tell you what's happening with your USB system, this is what I get when I plug my digicam (that uses USB mass storage):
