Apologies if this has been covered before . . .
I'm sure it must have been but I couldn't find it.
So my fstab has this line:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/widget vfat defaults 0 0
And I have two USB drives which I want to be able to mount. The one works fine - no problem. This is the one I had in the USB while installing Slackware 10.2. As expected it told me there was a vfat partition and asked for the mount point and showed me the information to go in the fstab.
Now, the other drive, actually an MP3 player, (which works fine here on the windows box as a pen drive) will not mount.
from /mnt, "mount widget" returns:
/dev/sda1 is not a valid block device
So how can I fix this?
