Slackware 10.1 and SanDisk USB Flash Drive


Hello,

I'm running Slackware 10.1 and cannot figure out how to mount my new SanDisk Cruzer Mini USB Flash Drive.

I've tried

mount -t msdos /dev/sda /mnt/floppy

but this doesn't work.

I'm guessing /dev/sda is correct. There's no sda1, sda2, etc. in /dev, just sda.

I'm guessing the flash drive file system is some type of FAT system.

I know the USB port is working.

Thanks for your help.

Now, I can mount it.

It appears on /dev/sda1. sda1 didn't appear before. Is this a function of hotplug?

yes. Hotplug creates devices for hotplugged devices(wow, what a stupidly circular obvious statement) in counjuction with udev and the 2.6 kernel. It still works with devfs and the 2.4 kernel, just not as well.
