I have followed all the steps to mount my pendrive but i culdnt find solution to the problem
Actually whenever i give command
mount -t vfat /dev/sda8 /mnt/pendrive
it gives ...
mount: /dev/sda8 is not a valid block device
i tried with /dev/sda1...
The problem is iam unable to detect the correct device for my pendrive.

After inserting my pendrive and the giving the command..
fdisk -l it gives hda1 and hda2 but sda is not recognized

Then giving the command ..
dmesg
the following output is generated...

Bus 006 Device 006: ID 090c:1000 Feiya Technology Corp. Memory Bar
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
What I would do to troubleshoot is the following..

Make sure the USB flash drive is NOT plugged into your machine

Open a command shell and type the following
tail -n 0 -f /var/log/messages

now plug in your USB flash drive

you should see some output similar to the following.

Code:
it-etch:~# tail -n 0 -f /var/log/messages
May 23 11:14:33 it-etch kernel: usb 6-8: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6

May 23 11:14:38 it-etch kernel: SCSI device sdb: 3963904 512-byte hdwr sectors (2030 MB)
May 23 11:14:38 it-etch kernel: sdb: Write Protect is off
May 23 11:14:38 it-etch kernel:  sdb: sdb1
May 23 11:14:38 it-etch kernel: sd 6:0:0:0: Attached scsi removable disk sdb
May 23 11:14:38 it-etch kernel: sd 6:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg1 type 0
as you can see above it detected my USB Flash drive as /dev/sdb

and I would mount it as /dev/sdb1


mkdir /media/usbflash
mount /dev/sdb1 /media/usbflash


if that works you can add an entry into your /etc/fstab file to allow regular users to mount the flash drive. something similar to the following
/dev/sda1 /media/usbflash auto users,noauto 0 0


if that doesn't work you may want to make sure the usb and usb-storage modules are loaded.
Code:
userer@it-etch:~$ lsmod | grep usb
usbhid                 37248  0
usb_storage            72000  1
scsi_mod              124168  5 sg,sd_mod,usb_storage,ahci,libata
ide_core              110504  5 ide_generic,ide_cd,usb_storage,generic,atiixp
usbcore               112644  5 usbhid,usb_storage,ehci_hcd,ohci_hcd

take a look and find out what you see. post the output back here if you are still having difficulties.

problem not solved

Thank you for your quick response

I tried step by step ..

First of all lsusb doesnot recognize by the system..

[root@localhost root]# lsusb
bash: lsusb: command not found

next step..

[root@localhost root]# tail -n 0 -f /var/log/messages
May 24 21:37:24 localhost kernel: hub 4-0:0: new USB device on port 5, assigned address 2

then ..

[root@localhost root]# lsmod | grep usb
usbcore 87900 4 ehci_hcd,uhci_hcd


By comparing your output to mine i think so some modules are missing..
please guide me how to install the missing modules...

Is the problem lies in missing modules? or there is some other problem.
