Strange USB flash drive issue
Hey people, here is the issue: when i try to mound my USB flash drive i get this:

Unable to load NLS charset cp437
FAT: codepage cp437 not found
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1, or too many mounted file systems

I have re-partitioned it and used mkdosfs to format it. I have even formatted it on a winblows box and i still get that error.

Have you tried mounting it as /dev/sdb1 or /dev/sda ?

Not now, John! 01-05-2005 04:30 PM

Use this in your /etc/fstab:

/dev/sda1      /mnt/usb      auto    noauto,rw,user        0    0
No other options like charset.
