Lightbulb why doesn't my flash drive work?


I just bought a PNY USB2.0 512Mb Flash Drive Attache.
It says on the box that Linux kernel 2.4 and high is supported.
A few minutes after I connected it to a USB port on my laptop (Sony VAIO PCG-FX501 with RedHat9.0 kernel 2.4.20) my mouse dissappeared. I guess somehow it conflicts with my USB mouse.
Before I had a JetFlash USB drive and it was working fine. I created /mnt/jetflash and added the following line
"/dev/sda1 /mnt/jetflash vfat rw,noauto,user,exec 0 0"
to /etc/fstab and mounted it as "mount jetflash" from /mnt .
The same procedure does not work for PNY USB2.0 Flash Drive Attache. I get a message "mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device"

Can anyone tell me how to prevent my mouse from dissappering when my PNY USB flash drive is connected and how to make my laptop recognize my flash drive?


Cheers,

Irena

After plugging in the usb drive, do a dmesg and what does it tell you it detected for the device?

also, keep in mind RH 9.0 is old and pretty out-dated. You are probably running an old 2.4.X kernel, usb support is improved in newer kernel, maybe your is a bit buggy?

What's your exact kernel version?

My exact kernel version is 2.4.20-8 .
Before I bought PNY flash drive I used JetFlash (provided by my employer) and it worked without any problems.
I don't understand why I have these problems (especially disappearance of my mouse) with my new PNY flash drive.

according to what you posted, look like there is a bug about this device and your usb hub... thus I don't know exactly what cause it or to what it refer. My guess would be to update the kernel, but it's just a wild guess.

I am not very good at replacing kernels. Could you give me a guide how to do it and where to get a new stable kernel from (with AMD Duron processor support)?
I have lots of additional software installed on my laptop. Will a new kernel affect its performace? In particular, I am worrying about my modem drivers - it took me ages to make my modem working "by trial and error" . I am not sure I will be able to repeat it.

Thanks,
Irena

I only trust "vanilla" kernel from www.kernel.org, but if you want, you could find one from RH, it would be far easier to install.
But yes, you will most likely have to reinstall your modem drivers and other drivers you installed by yourself....
If you still want to try it, I could give you a general guide, but the first kernel you compile on a computer is always a "guess and try" game.
