USB devices are not connecting properly on Knoppix 6.1


Hi all,

Currently have installed Knoppix 6.1, all is working fine in the display mode, internet, I have No xserver resetting issues that I suffered with Ubuntu 9.04.

It is quite a full distro with lots of applications to try. However, when i plugged my mp3 player in the fun started to begin. even though there is power to the USB ports to charge my mp3 player, knoppix can't see it, and everytime I move the mouse it will depower the USB and it will repower again when im not using it.

The obvious answer would be that there is no driver for the USB, so where do I find a driver from for knoppix? or is the problem more simple in that?

appreciate any advice given, Thanks

There is some h/w problem or it maybe 'blinking indicates activity'

post output of

#dmesg

#mount

manual mounting is something like

#su
#mkdir /media/disk
#mount -t vfat /dev/sdc1 /media/disk

it maybe /dev/sdb1

Hi,

In the future be sure to use the vbcode tags, quote or code. The code tag is the '#' sign at the top of the reply window while the quote is to the left of the '#' as a balloon. This will make your post cleaner therefore easier to read.

What mp3 device are you using? There exist a conflict between devices. The udev is not handling or doesn't know how to handle this device.
