Freecom classic USB drive with Linux.


I just get new 80Gb usb drive, but there is big problems to run it under linux. It seems to be mounted, but does not work. One example>
Code:
[root@...]# ls /mnt/removeable
ls: /mnt/removeable: No such file or directory
[root@...]# ls /mnt/removeable2
ls: /mnt/removeable2: No such file or directory

[root@... /]# cd mnt
[root@... mnt]# dir
cdrom  removable  removable2  win_c  win_d  win_e  win_f  win_g
[root@... mnt]# cd removable
[root@... removable]# dir
[root@... removable]#

Use the "df" command to show what devices are mounted.

What kernel are you running - what does uname -a show you?

If you are running a 2.4.x kernel, then I would suggest you mount using a command like:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/yourmountpoint

I haven't seen Linux use a scsi dev file like the one you have in your fstab file before (/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1). Does anyone know if this the 2.6.x way of organizing scsi /dev/files?

I am sorry, but I don't have experience with the 2.6.x kernels.
