Suse 9.1 USB stick Mounting problems


Hello everybody,

I am running Suse 9.1 personal and i am having problems mounting my USB stick. Ive done a few searches here and havent found anything about this "message" im getting.

Stick: Cruiser Mini 256

Following this thread:
linuxquestions.org/questions/history/207303
<url parsed because of newbie posting rules ...sorry>

I think i done everything and am getting good results so-far, but when i run a “dmesg” i get the following message about the USB stick.

Quote:

I had previously set-up the dir and thought i corrected my “fstab” file correctly:
Quote:
<snip>
linux:/ # ls /media/
. .. cdrecorder floppy usb-stick

<snip>

linux:/ # mount /media/usb-stick
mount: /dev/sdc1 is not a valid block device
I was wondering if there is anything else i can do to get the stick to work?

Thanx
John

rakriege,

Thank you for the reply, but that didnt work either. I tried to mounting sda but the error
"linux:/home # mount /dev/sda
mount: can't find /dev/sda in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab"
Was tossed back at me.

So then i tried to edit my FSTAB file to read:
/dev/sda_________/media/usb-stick __ auto __ rw,noauto,users,exec,umask=0000,sync __ 0 0
but then i get the same "is not a valid block device" error.

Am i missing anything?

Try this:

lsssci

This command should list what /dev you are using with your stick. For example if it returns /dev/sdb

Try

mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt -t msdos -o rw

Hopefully, you can then use konqueror to browsw the stick.
