Exclamation western digital 160GB usb hard drive


i'm having trouble making my USB Hard drive working. well, pretty much, my system can't even register the device. is there anything i'm doing wrong? included below is a dump of lsmod (the modules i'm using), dmesg, and my messages file (the messages i receive when running kudzu). i'm running RedHat Enterprise WS 3.

[root@server /]# lsmod

Aug 16 09:02:53 server /etc/hotplug/usb.agent: ... no modules for USB product 0/0/0
any help would be appreciated. i noticed that in my messages file, though, it says:

Code:
Aug 16 09:02:53 server /etc/hotplug/usb.agent: ... no modules for USB product 0/0/0
Aug 16 09:02:53 server /etc/hotplug/usb.agent: ... no modules for USB product 0/0/0
does that mean i have to manually load a driver/module?


thanks!!!!

Cool

update!!!!!!!!!

i did a modprobe on usb-uhci and that fixed everything. i was then able fdisk /dev/sda and partition my WD USB drive. i then continued on to mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda1 !!!!

i probably stumped a lot of you guys, but i figured it out. i hope others may be albe to use this information to help themselves!!!!!!!!!!!


thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
