/dev/sda1 NOT a valid block device ???
hi. i am running suse 9.1 pro. i have a 4 in 1 card reader hooked to the pc via usb.
my linux is set up for usb and the usbfs. i have been thru tutorials and things seem to be set up automatically by suse to handle this.
but MASS STORAGE DEVICE is not listed in my usb devices area. and when i try to mount /dev/sda1 it says sda1 is not a valid block device. no matter what i use, sda1, sda, sda2, sdb, i have tried dozens...i always get the not valid block device.
i cannot find where anyone has addressed this one concern. it is always passed over in the topics. how do i mount this drive?!! or get the system to realize the mass storage device?
