USB Hard Drive Problem


Nov 17 05:54:56 localhost /etc/hotplug/usb.agent: Setup usb-storage for USB product 55aa/103/3
Nov 17 06:03:04 localhost kernel: Attached scsi disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
Nov 17 06:03:04 localhost kernel: SCSI device sda: 23579137 512-byte hdwr sectors (12073 MB)
Nov 17 06:03:04 localhost kernel: sda: sda1
Nov 17 06:03:04 localhost modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module ntfs
Nov 17 06:03:04 localhost modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module freentfs
Nov 17 06:03:13 localhost kernel: FAT: bogus logical sector size 64543
Nov 17 06:03:13 localhost kernel: VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev 08:00.

thats what it basically says on my /var/log/messages and i think im supposed to look for usb mass storage but that seems to not show up, i read somewhere i have to change the kernal (ugh, only my 1st day with linux) and stuff

any help would be great

well that's an ntfs issue, you don't say what distro you're using, but from the error's i'd assume you don't have the ntfs module on your system, which is known to be very dangerous, there have been a few threads recently about the danger of ntfs drivers. but either you recomplie your kernel with the dangerous beta code, or you change the file system on the drive to fat32 or similar.

uh uh uh, now you go to http://tldp.org and READ the kernel howto, OR search this site for *very* breif details on it. THAT is how, no escaping it this time... come on bud, you can do it!
