Creative USB Removeable drive


I mount the drive and then the kernel says that the drive is not supported by the kernel. So I'm now using Redhat 9 and so I'm able to mod the kernel and still run it. I change the settings in KDE Control panel with the kernel and added support for fat16 and still it saids that the kernel is not supported.... What do I do? IT's a creative USB Mp3 player.....

Please clarify: how are you attempting to mount the device, and exactly what error message do you receive?

The standard RH9 kernel can do usb mass-storage, so it's better if you test with the original kernel rather than the fresh kernel which is an unknown quantity.

Ok how do you you mount the usb mass- storage? I just mount it from whatever it finds! I mount it just like I mount a hard drive? IS there a different way to mount for removeable USB?

>I just mount it from whatever it finds
I don't know what you mean. Are you using some kind of GUI?

>I mount it just like I mount a hard drive
Which is how?

When I've plugged in a USB mass storage device, I generally mount it using a command something like "mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/wherever".

to clarify what Faecal said: you have to mount USB drives as SCSI! And you should have been able to run it without messing around with your kernel, if its fresh enough.
