r50p ibm, debian r.03 Sarge, flash device mount probs


Hi all,

I can't seem to mount my usb memory stick...
it's an apacer 256 mb stick


what I allready did :

kernel 2.6.8 with usb mass storage compiled in
my module uhci_hcd is compiled in kernel
all microsoft filesystems are precompiled in kernel (fat, ntfs etc...)
scsi is also compiled in kernel, not as module but fixed...

and following I have as well in dmesg :
scsi2 SCSI emulation for usb mass storage

when i plug in my memory stikck i get following message :

usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using address 4
scsi2 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
Vendor USB
Model FLASH Drive
Rev 1.12
Type direct access
etc...



I put following in /etc/fstab :

none /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs noauto 0 0

/dev/sda1 /mnt/usb_stick vat noauto,user,fmask=133,dmask=022

when i try to mount /dev/sda1 I get :
mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device
I can't even do a cfdisk /dev/sda1 cause it's not there...

dmesg gives after plug in of usb :
usb-storage: scsi cmd done, result=0x40000
thread sleeping
Queuecommand called
thread awakened
Bad target number (4:0)

can anyone give me some hints ?

ps : when i look in /proc/bus/usb I see all my usb ports are detected

I forgot to load sd_mod module

all works fine now, I can't read in a msdow fat 32 Win 95 partition, he gives file errors...

Unable to load nls charset cp437
FAT: codepage cp437 not fount
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblocck on /dev/sda1 or too many mounted file systems
