Mounting Problem


Hi, Im new here...

1) Recently i've tried to copy data from stonegate firewall using usb drive, but it didn't detect the drive. How to make sure the firewall detected my thumb drive.

2) How to make sure linux detected the floppy drive again if let's say i remove my floppy disk without unmounting it.

thanks.

dmesg should reveal plenty about hardware available, especially immediately after plugging in a USB drive.

i can't because the only directory that is available inside /var is /run and /tmp.

btw, how about the second question regarding the floppy drive. i need to access the drive.

thanks.

well well well. It looks like you're not root. so even if your drive gets detected, you would'nt be able to mount it anyway.

You'd need to unmount the floppy, reinsert the disk, and then remount it.
