I am new in Embedded Linux. I am working on ARM target Microcontroller using Linux kernel 2.6. Overall system working fine I crosscomple on x86 but problem is this when I inserting USB flash drive in target board, drive recorgnised by the system but it did not create driver file in /dev directory (normally creating /dev file at the time of prob function trigger, prob function triggered when flash drive insert into system). please explain me how i can create file /dev, or any other way to excess the drive?

Sda and usb.

Have you ls -l for /dev sd* and usb*? it may have set the device-name to one of those.

Not sure if this might help.

Instead of mounting the drive to the /mnt dir, might need to use a sub-dir (there mounted drives in /mnt that might have a problem with that). you could create a subdir in /mnt like /mnt/memory and use that as the mount point. ex:

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/memory

also post the results of:

ls -lR /dev/disk ( gives you the name assigned by udev )

udev -a -p /sys/block/sda ( specific device info )

This should tell us if udev is detecting and setting up the device wierd.
