Sarge won't read USB drive correctly


Hi all. I'm having a problem with Sarge not reading my USB drive correctly. It detects it and when I open it I have 4 directories (labled 001,002,003,004) and a file called "devices". I was expecting pictures since this comes from the compact flash card my camera uses, here is a copy of /etc/fstab file-


Code:
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda3       /               reiserfs noatime         0       1
/dev/hda1       /boot           reiserfs notail,noatime  0       2
/dev/hda2       none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/hdd        /media/cdrom0   iso9660 ro,user,noauto  0       0
/dev/hdc        /media/cdrom1   iso9660 ro,user,noauto  0       0
/dev/sda        /media/usb0     auto    rw,user,noauto  0       0
/dev/hdb5       /mnt/windows       vfat    auto,users,rw,owner,exec,umask=000
I've tried changing the file system type from auto, usbfs, and vfat, and it's still not working. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

If that's the only scsi device you have, I think you need to change /dev/sda to /dev/sda1

do a "tail -s 3 -f /var/log/messages", then plug in the usb device and watch to see which device the drive is enumerated to.

Would it be /dev/scsi?
