hello,
Follow the steps to mount and access your pen drive.
1. format===== this will display all your storage disks available.
Here verify your pen dive is detected by the OS or not. this will be displayed like
"cXtXsX" depends upon your usb number.
If you have no idea on this, unplug the drive and run format command and note the results. Then go for plug-in the pen drive and again go for format command.
NOTE::- type only format--- no switches
now you can compare the results of both "format " and find the disk identity for your pen drive. let it be "cXtXdXsX"
2. create a directory mkdir /home/pen
3. mount /dev/rdsk/cXtXdXsX /home/pen(type the one , which your system show as pen drive)
4. cd /home/pen
You can now access your pen drive

This example works when the automounter is disabled on Solaris 10.

Alternatively, you can enable it or better: use HAL which replaces the automounter on Solaris Express build 47 and newer.

With the automounter, you may have to restart the daemon if the disk isn't detected when inserted (/etc/init.d/volmgt stop; /etc/init.d/volmgt start).

With HAL, just plug the disk in and it will be mounted on /media/<disk name> , much simpler.

In all cases, don't forget to unmount the disk before unplugging it with the "eject" command, especially if you have written something on it.
