Large (512mb) USB stick doesn't work with SuSE Personal 9.1
I guess the title says it all really.
It appears in /media as four separate devices (that can't be good) and none of them are ever accessible.
The flashy blue LED does light up when I plug it in, and Konqueror does auto-open all four directories, but on each one I get the message
"Could not enter folder /media/usb-storage-58DEE1416E52C547:0:0:0p1"
except with 2 thru 4 instead of 1 at the end for the 'other devices'.
The packaging does advertise Linux 2.4+ compatability - can anybody help me out?
1. what are the permissions on the /media directory and all usb directories?
2. Is this a new USB stick, and have you formatted it yet?
I'm guessing that it's either a permissions and/or file system initialization issue -- J.W.
Well, I tried accessing it as root, but I got the same error.
If you're still interested,
Owner has all permission;
Group and Other have Enter and Read, but not Write.
I'd put that in the normal format, but I don't know the normal format :p
It is new, and yes, I thought of formatting it - I did that in Windoze, but it made no difference.
How would I go about formatting it in Linux, and which one should I do it to?
Thanks in advance...
This post (discussing this subject) has some links to change to manual mounting. That did the trick for me.
