cigar pro usb drive


I am having difficulty getting my cigar pro usb drive to work in RH 9.0 (it was working in 7.3)

I create the folder /mnt/cigarpro, then on the next command i get an error:
>>mount -t ext2 /dev/sda /mnt/cigarpro
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda, or too many mounted file systems

I enter:
>>dd if=/dev/sda of=/tmp/drivedump count=1024
1024+0 records in
1024+0 records out

the file drivedump is binary, so can't really read it.

also did:
>>cat /proc/partitions
major minor #blocks name rio rmerge rsect ruse wio wmerge wsect wuse running use aveq

8 0 516096 sda 2655 166473 338256 433100 0 0 0 0 0 212720 433100

774660

Tried the same commands with sda1 (instead of sda) with the same results.

Can anyone tell me what else to do?

1) Try mounting the /tmp/drivedump file in the cigarpro directory and see what happens. Try it as ext2, fat, and vfat and see if one of those works.

2) try using format and see what comes out when you chose the usb drive and then p for partition. That will give you what format it is.

>>mount -t ext2 /tmp/drivedump /mnt/cigarpro
mount: /tmp/drivedump is not a block device (maybe try `-o loop'?)

>> mount -t fat /tmp/drivedump /mnt/cigarpro
mount: fs type fat not supported by kernel

>>mount -t vfat /tmp/drivedump /mnt/cigarpro
mount: /tmp/drivedump is not a block device (maybe try `-o loop'?)

I didnt see loop as an option for -o

I'm not sure what you mean by your format suggestion.

mount -t ext2 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0 /tmp/drivedump /mnt/cigarpro

as root type
fdisk /dev/sda

that will bring you to a menu or give you a "Not a valid block device" error. If it's the error, try sdb sdc, etc and see what it comes back as.

In any case, check /var/log/messages and have a tail -f /var/log/messages going when you plug the drive in and see what the output tells you. It'll tell you if the drive is recognized and what device it becomes.

i don't know how you guys know all these commands, its amazing to me.

>>mount -t ext2 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0 /tmp/drivedump /mnt/cigarpro
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
or too many mounted file systems

>>fdisk /dev/sda
Command (m for help): m
Command action
a toggle a bootable flag
b edit bsd disklabel
c toggle the dos compatibility flag
d delete a partition
l list known partition types
m print this menu
n add a new partition
o create a new empty DOS partition table
p print the partition table
q quit without saving changes
s create a new empty Sun disklabel
t change a partition's system id
u change display/entry units
v verify the partition table
w write table to disk and exit
x extra functionality (experts only)

What to choose?

When i unplug and replug the device, /var/log/messages says:
May 20 10:37:09 localhost kernel: usb.c: USB disconnect on device 00:13.2-3.2 address 3
May 20 10:37:14 localhost kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:13.2-3.2, assigned address 4
May 20 10:37:17 localhost /etc/hotplug/usb.agent: Setup usb-storage for USB product ea0/6803/100

I was having the same problem, and fixed it by including the sd_mod module.

modprobe sd_mod

After that, I could mount the drive just fine.
