External USB 2 HD not recognized


I just installed am external USB .20 /Firewire 60 GB hard drive from ACOM Data on my RedHat 8.0 system. I currently have the drive connected through the USB port, but the system is not recognizing the drive as a mountable block device.

The dmesg file shows the following for the device.

SCSI subsystem driver Revision: 1.00
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
usb.c: registered new driver usb-storage
scsi0 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
Vendor: Maxtor 6 Model: Y060L0 Rev: YAR4
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
WARNING: USB Mass Storage data integrity not assured

I don't see any evidence that the hard drive is showing up as a device.

Thanks in advance for any pointers.

It didn't do a device scan, that's weird... it should have done something like:

Code:
usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x5e3/0x700) is not claimed by any active driver.
usb-uhci.c: $Revision: 1.275 $ time 19:40:17 Mar 11 2003
usb-uhci.c: High bandwidth mode enabled
usb-uhci.c: v1.275:USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
usb.c: registered new driver usb-storage
scsi2 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
  Vendor: SIIG      Model: CompactFlash Car  Rev: 0113
  Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi2, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
SCSI device sda: 15873 512-byte hdwr sectors (8 MB)
sda: test WP failed, assume Write Enabled
 sda: sda1
WARNING: USB Mass Storage data integrity not assured
With a partition check...

Beats me as to why not, might be a kernel usb issue, with 2.4.18 on RH 8.0 you are dealling with a year old kernel... might want to yank the usb module and try usb-uhci instead (yeah, 2 modules, same job), or d/l and compile 2.4.20.

Cheers,

Finegan - i have the same prob too. However i do have a RH9 box with a 2.4.20-19.9smp kernel.

And when I do an fdisk -l, I don't get any extra drives being listed (expecting /dev/sda1). This is what my log looks like:

Aug 8 13:05:33 b23techpc7 kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:1d.7-3, assigned address 2

Thumbs up

I just installed one today, and nuttin happened till I ran kudzu -p, then it identified the drive as SCSI and IDE device, but gave it /dev/sda for a name. I tried mounting it at that time, but got errors. But I tried different routines and went back and it mounted it finally.
