Cannot mount USB Red Hat 9


I cannot mount USB in Red Hat Linux 9.When I insert the USB,it recognizes it as SCSI devicxe and assign it /dev/sdc,but vhen I try to mount it to created directory /mnt/usb-stick, it fails,telling me that there is a bad superblock,or too many mounted filesystems or...
I triend mount -t vfat /dev/sdc /mnt/usb-stick,tried -t auto, -t msdos,changed USB disks,formatted them...anyone had similar problems?

have u tried changing the mount point i.e /media

also normally we mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/usb & u have typed /dev/sdc, so even chk tht out.

more data....

Hi,when I plug my USB,the bash shows:
Vendor :Jetflash etc.
SCSI Device sdc: ..2002942 512 byte header sectors(1026MB)
sdc:write protect is off
sdc:assumed drive cache:write through
SCSI Device sdc: ..2002942 512 byte header sectors(1026MB)

Attached scsi removable disk sdc at scsi4,channel 0,id 0,lun 0
Attached scsi generic sg3 at scsi4,channel 0,id0,lun0,type 0
______________________________________________________
When I run fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sdc:1025 MB,1025506304 bytes
33 heads,63 sectors/track,963 cylinders
Device Boot Start1 End Blocks Id System W95 fat
/dev/sdc 1 964 1001455 b
Partition 1 has different physical/logical beginnings (non-linux?)
phys=(0,1,1), logical =(0,0,33)
phys=(225,32,63) logical =(963,14,46)
___________________________________________________________
When I run df -h, sdc is not shown
____________________
I tried to mount the USB with
mount /dev/sdc /mnt/usb-stick
and it shows:
FAT(invalid media value 0x00)
mount:you must specify file type


When I type mount -t vfat /dev/sdc /mnt/usb-stick, it shows
FAT(invalid media value 0x00)
mount:wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc, or too many mounted file systems.



IS IT POSSIBLE THAT SOMEONE LOCKED/DISABLED USING USB,because I "inherited" the server from someone else who is not accessible at the moment...

RH9 is very old, so there's a pretty good chance that that's the source of your problem.

Hi there,

With RedHat 9, you might need to have superuser right to mount external USB devices.

Cheers
