Where are my USB drives ?


I've just installed Linux for the first time , and its working great . But i have a harddisk that i use with a USB slave. But i cant find it anywhere. I looked in the config about my pc and i says its mounted. But i don' t know where the directory is located.

So what do you see when you type 'mount' at a root prompt?

Unless your mount command is different to mine, typing 'mount' with no arguments will tell you what is mounted and where. Ie:

gandalf root # mount
/dev/hda7 on / type reiserfs (rw,noatime)
/dev/hda1 on /mnt/windows type ntfs (ro,noexec,nosuid,nodev,umask=0)
/dev/hda5 on /boot type ext2 (rw,noatime)

Or are you seeing this:

gandalf root # mount
Error: thats it already mounted.

Try looking in the /mnt directory. Maybe /mnt/removable. Assuming this is the only USB storage device its device ID is /dev/sda1. You can also look at the /etc/fstab file to see where the device is mounted.
