Mount USB mp3 flash drive in linux


Distro: Slackware 10.1
Kernel: 2.6.11.7


I want to mount this flash drive.


I've read a couple of "HOWTO's" There is no /dev/sda* devices.

Here is a list of modules loaded:

Code:
Module                  Size  Used by
radeon                 76032  1
drm                    60692  2 radeon
snd_pcm_oss            49184  1
snd_mixer_oss          18048  3 snd_pcm_oss
usb_storage            29568  0
ohci_hcd               19592  0
ehci_hcd               29576  0
intel_agp              20380  1
snd_intel8x0           29376  3
snd_ac97_codec         75640  1 snd_intel8x0
snd_pcm                83972  3 snd_pcm_oss,snd_intel8x0,snd_ac97_codec
snd_timer              21764  1 snd_pcm
snd                    46436  6 snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_intel8x0,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm,snd_timer
soundcore               7520  4 snd
snd_page_alloc          7940  2 snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm
ide_scsi               14084  0
scsi_mod               74948  2 usb_storage,ide_scsi
agpgart                29228  2 drm,intel_agp
unix                   24084  408

Here is the output of tail -s 3 -f /var/log/messages:

Code:
Apr  9 18:36:24 honeypot kernel: usb 2-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 7

plug the usb disk in the usb port, then:

#modprobe usb-storage

take a look the dmesg (#dmesg | less) to see where is your new device, it should be something like /dev/sdc0

#mount /dev/sdc0 /mnt

Hope that helps

Hi,thanks for replying promptly.

However, the only devices that start with the letters "S" in /dev/ is 'stderr', 'stdin', and 'stdout' There is no sdc* devices.


But here is some info that i get from dmesg:

Code:
scsi7 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
usb-storage: device found at 10
usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
  Vendor: Creative  Model: NOMAD MuVo TX     Rev: 1105
  Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 04
usb-storage: device scan complete
