Please post the results of 'tail -s 3 -f /var/log/messages' when you plugged in the device. Also post the results of 'lsusb -v'.
Thanks.

I'm getting that same 'not a valid block device' message.
Bought a Sandisk Cruzer Mini 128 today.
Stuck it in my W2Kmachine - poof - it was available and I threw a file on it.
Decided to try it on my Red Hat 8 machine, but first... check LQ for threads.
Found this thread. Stepped through the steps.
Tried /dev/sda1, sda, sdb1, sdc1, etc etc...

This was from that tail command:
Jan 12 21:12:26 localhost su(pam_unix)[2268]: session opened for user root by (uid=500)
Jan 12 21:13:13 localhost kernel: Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
Jan 12 21:13:13 localhost kernel: usb.c: registered new driver usb-storage
Jan 12 21:13:13 localhost kernel: USB Mass Storage support registered.
This happened when I did the 'insmod usb-storage', and got the same thing earlier when I used 'modprobe usb-storage'.

When I stick the drive in the usb slot, nothing happens.

Here's that lsusb -v:
Code:
[root@localhost /]# lsusb -v

And, like I said, I also went through the whole process for sdb, sdc, sdd...

The little light on the end of the little 'drive' never comes on in the linux machine.
How can I determine which device is associated with the thing??

Thanks for any additional info.

oops... never mind!!!

I guess I didn't connect up the usb ports on the front of this machine.
It works in the ports on the back...

Sorry about that...

Should've checked on that before posting.

Well, I plugged the stupid thing into the back usb port and got the light on the device, but nothing works to get it to mount or to be available.

As a matter of fact the computer completely locked up a couple of times.

I undid everything in the original steps, rebooted, started over... now the dang light doesn't even come on when I plug it in.

Well, that's enough for me for one wasted 4 hour session.

Well, I'm having a similar problem. I have the Sandisk Cruzer Mini 256 and I'm having problems connecting it to my Redhat Linux 9 system. The usb-storage module loads fine, but the system locks solid each time I connect the cruzer. When I first tried to connect the stick (pre reading this howto), it did the same thing. I checked /var/log/messages and nothing is in there that might give a clue. The last entry before my last reboot was that the USB Storage module was successfully loaded. Any thoughts?

Interesting enough, I have 2 memory sticks. One is a PNY Attache 128 Meg, the other is a SanDisk Cruzer mini, 256 Meg.

The PNY works just fine, with this tutorial. However, I can't seem to get the Cruzer working. I wonder if it has to do with it being a Cruzer, or the capacity.

Anyone know? I'm running RH AS 3.

Question

Nice info on USB drives as i just purchased one a few days ago. All the info i needed is right here.

'nbd' did raise a question that didnt seem to get answered, and i was wondering about the same thing.

refering to the fact that is is possible for auto mounting when you plug in the device and un-mounting when you unplug the device.

"No USB attached -> no /dev/sda1 (or similar) icon on the desktop
Attach USB -> /dev/sda1 icon appears on the desktop
Remove USB -> /dev/sda1 icon disappears from the desktop" --nbd

I am sure you can put a small script somewhere that does this for you since my system already loads 'usb-storage' module automaically once the device is plugged in.

Right now all i have to do is 'mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbkey'

As stated above, i was wondering if the process could be furthur automated by having the key auto mount / unmount as you plugin the usb-key.

I'm Using Slackware 9.1.

Question Multipe USB Flash Device Conflicts in RH9?

Hey guys.
I just recently updated to RH9, previously running RH8. I've got two USB Flash Drives, a PNY Attache 64MB and a ghetto cheap one I picked up for free (16MB). Before the upgrade, I had read the how-to in this thread and had managed to get both drives to work beautifully.

But post-update, I can only get the ghetto cheap drive to work (and it works fine), but I'm a bit constricted by the relative small size. Is there any reason that one should work and the other wouldn't?

My /etc/fstab file:

Code:
LABEL=/                 /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
LABEL=/home             /home                   ext3    defaults        1 2
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
LABEL=/tmp              /tmp                    ext3    defaults        1 2
LABEL=/var              /var                    ext3    defaults        1 2
/dev/hda6               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0

Despite the few error-ish messages, the drive mounts/unmounts beautifully just by double-clicking the icon on my Desktop. Another thing... I've got the drive set up to be /dev/sda1... so what's with this stuff about sdb in the tail output?

Moving on, here's the output for the non-working Attache:

Also...

Code:
[root@SplicedBox root]# mount /mnt/usbstick
mount: No medium found
Now I'm sure that I've probably screwed something up along the way (I don't feel bad, that's how ya learn!), so please point it out to me.

Any help is greatly appreciated.


*edit* After viewing a post here, I typed the following at the command line:

Code:
[root@SplicedBox root]# fdisk -l /dev/sd[a-z]

Disk /dev/sdb: 65 MB, 65536000 bytes
16 heads, 32 sectors/track, 250 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 512 * 512 = 262144 bytes

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1   *         1       249     63728    6  FAT16
[root@SplicedBox root]# mount /dev/sdb1
[root@SplicedBox root]#
It mounted fine.. I edited fstab, and now that device (at least) works okay... by why would one work on /dev/sda1 and one on /dev/sdb1? Personally, I think that's wierd...

Guidance, please?
