usb stick questions!!
i am asking some questions on usb stick (or handydrive).
1. how can i automount a usb stick automatically, as what a cd is put into the cdrom. then a icon will appear on the desktop?
2. i know to mount a usb stick manually, but, after all, i want to umount it. it always prompt me. "usb device is busy". how can i cater for it?
3. are there better solution of mounting and unmounting a usb stick in a more proper manner? thanks
ok i just was going to post a question about usb flash drives im running mandrake 10.1 and i have a flash drive i dont know how to acces the date on it sorry for posting in here but same topic
2. It will say that the device is busy if you current working directory is on the USB-device. Go to your home directory (cd ~), and then try unmounting it.
3. I assume you are using the command line, then the commands "mount /mnt/usb" and "umount /mnt/usb" should work, if the usb stick is set up in /etc/fstab.
You will need to add a line in the file /etc/fstab, mine looks like the following:
Then, as a normal user, insert the USB stick, and issue the command "mount /mnt/usb", and your files will be available in the directory /mnt/usb. When you are finished, run the command "umount /mnt/usb" before removing the USB stick. When the command prompt appears again, you are safe to remove the device.
I hope this helps
