USB doesn't mount at all, including flash drive, camera, etc., plus I'm a total n00b
 
Correct me if I'm being stupid.

None of my USB ports mount the things I plug in. Is there something I have to do to mount them manually? Or do I have to add the ports into /media or something? Because it doesn't even show that I have USB ports in /media, but I have seen references to them in various directories.

One time, kinda randomly, I found that a ton more things had been detected, including my USB ports and some other stuff, I couldn't tell you, and my USB flash drive (which says its compatible with the Linux kernel I'm using) mounted when I plugged it in. but when I booted up again the next day, it wouldn't detect the drive at all again.

So, I can't get pictures from my camera, because it doesn't detect it, it won't detect a wireless adapter, and it won't detect my flash drive either. I'd reeeeeeaaalllly appreciate some help.

I'm running Ubuntu/Kubuntu (I installed the KDE package while in Ubuntu and I usually log in in a KDE session), I have an eMachines computer bought this past summer, model number T6520. If you need the some specs, although I'm guessing they won't be of much use but I'm just covering all my bases, my processor is an AMD Athlon 64. I seriously doubt you need to know my graphics card, hard drive, RAM, whatever.

So is there something I'm missing, or is this a valid problem?

I don't use ubuntu but you should be able to do it this way.
for my camera I mount it like;
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb
I created the dir first
mkdir /mnt/usb
to see what it is called plug it in and then
dmesg

keeganspeck 01-28-2007 07:10 PM

yea... doesn't work. sdb1 doesn't exist-- unique to gentoo maybe?

comprookie2000 01-28-2007 07:23 PM

What did dmesg say? I have a sata hard drive so that is why it is sdb.
Yours may me sda.

Mepis uses a ubuntu kernel, this may give you some pointers.
I think you have an ati usb controller it is OHCI HCD.

i'm sure that may help, but i'm sorry to say i have no idea what the hell is going on. i mean, i'm pretty literate when it comes to computers, but this is above me.

comprookie2000 01-30-2007 03:43 PM

Just add irqpoll to the end of the kernel line in /boot/grub/grub.conf or may be for ubuntu
/boot/grub/menu.lst
just make a new entry on the bottom of the file and copy it exact but add irqpoll
like this
Code:


title=Safe
root (hd0,0)
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/vmlinuz.old  root=/dev/sda3 irqpoll


fragos 01-30-2007 06:31 PM

USB devices, particularly storage work without having to configure anything. Odds are you've done something. My familiarity is more with Ubuntu Gnome. Whether or not mounted devices display on the desktop is a configuration parameter you might have set by telling one of these pop ups to do the same thing all the time without notifying you. If set not to display you should still be able to see them in Nautilus or Konqueror. Not seen may not mean not mounted. You can also disable the pop ups that come when a new device is detected. You might also have done yourself in if you made changes to udev rules of fstab. When a storage device is pluged into a USB port, a mount point will show up in /media. Almost all USB devices with storage like SD will mount as if a storage device in /media. In /media you will also see mount points for disk partitions and optical media like a DVD drive.

keeganspeck 01-30-2007 09:18 PM

ok well to respond to fagos, the drive wasnt anywhere in nautilus. it simply wasnt even detected. it wasnt in /media, and it wasnt in /mnt or anything either. i had looked for it for about a day and tried various things before using this forum. it wasnt detected, mounted or anything.

but, i got a flash drive to work... kinda. i did the irqpoll thing, but i did it after i "fixed" it another way.

if i plug it in after i put a cd in the cdrom drive, it is detected in /media and just in /.

there are also new directories in /mnt called usb, USB, and usbflash.

so great, i have the drive where i can work with it... but it says only root can mount it. and thats a problem.

the exact words are: Unable to mount the selected volume.
(in "more details") mount: only root can mount /dev/sda1 on /mnt/usb

so, i enter into the terminal: sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb

but when i do that, it says: mount: special device /dev/sda1 does not exist
... and it doesn't, ive checked that. im right in assuming that sda1 is supposed to be a "block file" or something? well, all of the "block files" i see in /dev are already associated with something, like the cdrom or with other things. and there is nothing named sda-anything or sdb-anything in it.

so, i just need to know how to mount it i guess... hopefully...

fragos 01-30-2007 11:46 PM

With the information you've provided an answer should be close at hand from someone that understands more about mounting than I do. /dev/sda1 sounds more like a hard drive and perhaps your problem can be fixed in fstab like it is for hard drives.

comprookie2000 01-31-2007 04:09 AM

Before you can mount it it has to show up in dmesg when you plug it in.
If the kernel does not see it it will never work.

dazer26 02-12-2007 06:30 PM

same problem
 
I think I have the very same problem. Just a few days ago I remember using my flash drive in kubuntu 6.10 and it was detected, mounted and an icon placed in the media folder and on the desktop. Now when I insert my flash drive nothing happens. Even the little light on the front of my drive doesn't come on as it should, as in there is no power reaching the drive. I found out though, that by restarting the computer (i'm mostly a windows user still, so thats my solution to everything) the drive would be detected and mounted along with my 2 windows partitions when it is loading up. BUT...if I log out, then log back in (not restarting) both my windows partitions and my USB are no longer mounted, and my USB still cannot be detected if I take it out and insert it again.

The only thing that I can think of is that one of the updates I got through adept (or synaptic in reg. ubuntu) updated the kernel I think, or some headers, i'm not too sure. It was a big update, and I wasn't paying much attention, buts thats the only major change that i'v made recently.

Any Ideas? Anyone else with ubuntu/kubuntu notice these symptoms?

upro 02-23-2007 11:02 AM

It's a permission problem. Ihad it in Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy).
Try importing images from a camera with

sudo gnome-volume-manager-gthumb

and it will work (if all modules are loaded, of course). It's an Edgy problem, I believe.
Hope that helps.

sda is for SATA HDDs. Your output, noted in post #5, indicates you are using an ATA, not SATA; so the proper drive notation is hda.
