I had a 250G drive up and working with USB2, but after a reinstall I wanted to set the drive which is currently undetected up as FireWire/1394, so I swapped out the cables.
When it was usb2, all I had to do was:
then it was detected as /dev/sda1
What do I need to do to use it as FireWire/1394? I've tried
What else do I need?
It's not seeing the drive...
[root@d3main root]# cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
Vendor: PLEXTOR Model: CD-R PX-W2410A Rev: 1.01
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02
And we can see that the modules are installed:
[root@d3main root]# lsmod
Module Size Used by Tainted: P
raw1394 21140 0 (unused)
sbp2 20684 0 (unused)
ohci1394 28872 0 (unused)
ieee1394 204644 0 [ohci1394]
If I try to mouth the drive, I get this:
[root@d3main root]# mount /dev/sda1 /home/ftpdir
mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device
Of course.. I didn't expect it to mount, since it's not beeing seen. :/
