I am running BusyBox v1.00 (2004.12.04-21:36+0000) off a Bootable CD Rom. I have tried booting with the flash drive in (it's a generic I got from CompUSA 256MB) and I have tried placing it in the USB on my laptop after booting. The first message, in either case, is:
usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
if I remove it and reinsert it I get :
usb 1-2: USB disconnect, address 2
usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3
I think I should be getting more of a message indicating the device attachment, i.e. /dev/usb/sda1 or something similar, but I don't.
I have checked dmesg and found messages for mounting the hard drive, floppy, and CDRom. Here are the messages I can find for USB. Can someone tell me if I am having a hardware problem or how/if I can mount this drive?
