I'm on suse 9.2 dying to connect an Iomega 80gb desktop usb hdd. How do I get to see it in devices so I can read and write to it
Drive power is on, plugged it into a usb port, started the machine, saw suse recognize the device and manufacturer on bootup, went to My Computer in KDE as root. It opens up drives:/. Didnt see it there. So I right clicked, Create New, Device, Hard Disc Device, went to Device Tab, selected usbfs from the drop down box, clicked OK. Then it gives me "Writing to Drives is not supported." Did I take the right approach.
The drive has some data on it I wouldnt like to lose. Ive gone into Yast, System, Partitioner anyway to check it out... I see 2 entries with 75GB: /dev/sda and /dev/sda1 (which says formatted Win95 FAT32). Nothing under Mount, so I went to Edit for /sda1 but under Mount Point there is only /srv, /tmp, /local. Not knowing what these are for I'm totally lost.
I need to back up my downloads on it ahead of a fresh 9.3 reinstall to fix a whole bunch of problems like it restarts when you shut down. Maybe it is or isnt related to my problem, but on startup I get Error-Could not start process Unable to create io-slave klauncher said: Unknown protocol 'devices'.
