USB stick
 
Recently,
I installed Suse 9.1 personal and when I logged in . it automatically detected my USB stick (data traveler kingston) without any problem. However, now that I try to mount it, it doesn't seem to work I tried mounting it manually
mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb but it says that it is not a valid block. Furtheremore, when I try using fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14593 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 7649 61440561 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2 7650 14462 54725422+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda3 14463 14593 1052257+ 82 Linux swap

Unfortunately, when I plug out my usb and then plug it in again there is no sign of activity in my system logs.

Tanx,

Dude, this would be one VERY large CF stick:

Disk /dev/sda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes

Check the output of "dmesg" and see if it was scanned as /dev/hdb or somesuch, actually if in doubt just post up as much of dmesg as you think is useful.

Cheers,

But that is not my stick ,that is my hard drive which is a SEGATE SATA 120G. Suse does not detect my USB stick @ all anymore.

/sbin/modprobe usb-storage

That, should, fire off another scsi device scan.

Cheers,
