Can't mount USB FLASH (Pen driver)


HI all,


I am using slackware 10-current i have just compiled my kernel and everything is working fine except i can't mount my 128mb usb pen in linux!!!


It gives me this error:

root@MixStation:/etc/rc.d# mount /dev/sda1 -t vfat /mnt/flash
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,
or too many mounted file system

I choose in kernel the scsi modules and the vfat modules did i forget something in the kernel?

Anyone can say what i need to do that .




Cya

remove the pen. run "dmesg -c". plugin the pen, run "dmesg".

the second dmesg should just contain what the usb subsystem makes of the device including filesystem recognition and assignments to /dev/entries and such.

Your mount command doesn't look right. Please try

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/flash

My guess is that the problem is in the kernel. You've either not compiled something you need when you compiled your kernel or you've compiled something as a module and you need to insert the module into the kernel before you can mount the usb. From your dmesg,

Unable to load NLS charset iso8859-1
FAT: IO charset iso8859-1 not found

looks suspicious. There's an option for that on the native language submenu of the file systems section of make menuconfig
