try this


tail -f /var/log/messages


then plug it in


and look at the results.



then with any luck try this


mkdir /mnt/jumpdrive

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/jumpdrive


or post the results of tail.

it said that /var/log/messages was an invalid argument.

i did the other thing and it made a mnt folder int /mnt but it didn't go to my jump drive.

Code:
tail -f /var/log/messages

what distro do you have, maybe it's another file that has the system logs

Like the previous thread says the MDK 7.1 kernels USB support is very basic. You need to update the kernel to latest 2.2.x See www.linux-usb.org and www.kernel.org. Or install a more recent distro with a 2.4 kernel like slack that will work on older PC's.
