!?

Try:
Quote:
lsusb
- for all your usb devices

or

Quote:
lspci
- for all your pci devices

or generally

Quote:
lshw
which lists all your hardware.

When it comes to your usb harddrive. Plug it in and type: dmesg | tail
It should mention something like /dev/sda or something similar so that you know what to mount.

Type in dmesg|tail, after you put it in. It will say something like found device /dev/sda. Then you can mount it using mount /dev/sda /mnt, for example.

Hi I am so sorry, I didnt mean that, i was struggling past to day, so i was expecting quick help..

sda is not gonna work, as scenario is diff. I have installed slackware on VMware, So it is not getting detected, think.. or something else is happening I have no idea.

But main thing is that Slackware is on the VMware Workstation...
Kindly consider it as a very first point..

As far as I remember, in VMware for each virtual machine there are options whether to enable sound, floppy, usb, etc. You can find some settings there.

yes setting are the enable.
but my i m confused what should I put in mount command in first place

mount <what to put here> /mnt/usb

first argument is questionable..
people are telling me put sda or sda1, but as I am in VMware, the virtual hard drive it has been created that is scsi device, so my virtual hard drive is sda1...
I hope, I am making sense to you all ...
Thanks...
