Mount USB stick in Mandrake 9.2


Does anybody know how to mount a usb stick in Mandrake 9.2?
I know that useally mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb/ is working but in 9.2 there is not any /dev/sda* .

Most of the time MDK will configure everything for you.

Look at the output of the console command dmesg.

Do you see any messages about the memory stick?
Look for usb mass storage device

Are all of the USB modules loading? Check the output of the console command lsmod.

Try using the app KwikDisk - a little icon appears in the sys tray, and clicking on it and starting KdiskFree should let you mount the usb drive. If it isn't installed, open a console, su to root, type in urpmi kwikdisk and follow the instructions. That should install it for you.

Problem solved with the help of http://www.linux-usb.org and it's FAQ.
There was a problem with ACPI.

I tried to make USB Memory stick to work in my Mandrake 9.1.

Now the /mnt is empty (no floppy, cd or Windows C).
I tried to use (upgrade-menus -v) but it didn't help.

Can somebody help me to restore my /mnt folder

Look at /ets/fstab to see what is there.
You can use harddrake2 to see if the devices where found.
You can also try (as root) to mount the devices, for examble mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom .

So i did write in Consol: mount /dev/floppy/mnt/floppy and the answer for that was mount: can't find /dev/floppy/mnt/floppy in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

etc/fstab:
fs/dev/hda5 / ext3 noatime 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hda7 /home ext3 noatime 1 2
none /mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/hdc,fs=auto,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=auto,--,iocharset=iso8859-15,sync,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda6 swap swap defaults 0 0tab:


So what shall i do?

I see in your /etc/fstab that the devices were found.
Try to put a cdrom and go to /mnt/cdrom or put a floppy and go to /mnt/floppy.

Mount command is mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom with space between them.

You can see the manual pages, man mount .

Thanks, i solved the problem.
I just didn't make restart after uptade-menus -v, but now i turned computer on and everything was fine again. So actually the command update-menus -v did help.

P.S. I'm SUPER

I want to make USB Memory stick to work in my Mandrake 9.1.
I don't no but maybe the problem is in this that my laptop has usb 1.1 port but my usb memory stick is 2.0.

Please help, i want to it!!

OK antiqps...
Create a dir ex. /mnt/flash and add this line to fstab

/dev/sda /mnt/flash vfat user,noauto,umask=0,exec 0 0

Now you can mount the stick with "mount /mnt/flash". If you are using gnome you can right-click your desktop and do "disks->flash" to mount/unmount it. In KDE right click your desktop and do "Create New->Device->Harddisk" and point it to /mnt/flash. Then you can mount/unmount by right-clicking it...

If you have trouble post back. If it works post back anyway so that other users know it worked.

greetings,
kamstrup

By the way... The usb2 vs. usb1.1 shouldn't be a problem. All most all usb2 sticks also support usb1.1 . If yours doesn't it would be really wierd...

until next time, tadaa!
