USB ports missing after power cut?


Hi All,

I got home today to find that there had been a power cut, and whilst the comp seems fine I can no longer mount my USB flash disk.

The entry in /etc/fstab is as follows....

/dev/sde1 /mnt/usb vfat auto,owner,users 0 0

and I've tried as non-root....

$ mount /mnt/usb
mount: /dev/sde1 is not a valid block device

and as root....

# mount -t vfat /dev/sde1 /mnt/usb
mount: /dev/sde1 is not a valid block device

I don't know if its of any use but.....

$ dmesg | grep usb
usb.c: registered new driver hub
usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 2
usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 3
usb.c: registered new driver usb-storage
usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x0/0x0) is not claimed by any active driver.

Does anyone have any idea what might have happened, and how I might sort this out?

Many thanks in advance,

Strange, solved the problem by booting into windoze, then back into Linux, sorry if I've wasted your time

N'ah, you've just added a bit of knowledge ;)

I've always found USB to be the least stable part of a computer, often a good reboot can help, maybe Windows reset something on the USB hub? Who knows, but still - it's fixed now ;)
