Flash disk not visible


For some reason I cannot see my flash disk (USB) when I plug it into my Kanotix machine. When plugging it into my Suse machine it is mounted automatically and an icon becomes visible on the desktop. When I click on the icon the contents is opened in Konqueror.

When plugging it into the Kanotix machine the small light on the flash disk starts flashing and after a couple of seconds iluminates permanently. No icon is displayed on the desktop. In Konqueror I cannot find it either under /mnt or under storage media (/media).

The flashing light on the flash disk shows me that it is actually detected by the PC. What is wrong?

Thanks

Did you try mounting it? I don't think automounting is that common in Linux (well, I'm guessing it isn't).

Firstly, you need to know which device to mount. Open a terminal window and run "dmesg" (without quotes). Post the output here.

Ok. First make a directory to mount to with mkdir, e.g. "mkdir /mnt/flash" (you may need to be root, depending on where you're trying to create the directory). Then try "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/flash" as root, but replace "/mnt/flash" with whatever directory you created.

It should really be /dev/sda*something*, given your dmesg output. However, there is a line that is worrying: "sda: unknown partition table". That's probably why you can't mount /dev/sda1. You could possibly try /dev/sda, but I'm not sure that would work. Have you reformatted the device or done anything to it since using it under SUSE?

Hi Nylex

Yes, I already tried /sda after having a look at the dmesg output. It asks for a filesystem to be specified. This is probably related to your comment about the unknown partition table. I tried specifying -t vfat but it also did not work. See below:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

I have used it on a WinXP PC and then just plugged it into the Suse machine. It immediately popped up and I could access it. I then unplugged it and plugged it directly into the Kanotix machine. I also tried a different flash disk, same thing.

That is odd. Is the other flash disk you tried a different brand/model? Does that one also work under SUSE/Windows? It could be a kernel problem, I did see a post in a Debian mailing list relating to kernel issues. Another thing you could do is run "fdisk /dev/sda" and see what that shows.

Yes, the other disk is a Sony. It also works fine in SUSE. If I run fdisk /dev/sda will that then format the drive?

No, you won't format the disk. Sorry, I meant run "fdisk -l /dev/sda". Oops.
