Question


I'm also trying to mount my usb device. I don't know if I have to change things in /etc/fstab in order to mount it or if I just have to figure out what port it is using. Either way, I'm not sure how to find out what port it is using. dmesg just tells me that it's using address 2. I have no idea if this means that it's sda or sdb or anything like that.

You have to alter you /etc/fstab to mount you device, since your computer has to find out where to display the files it finds on you stick. Address 2 is just the usb ports its attached to, and really doesn't matter. Look to Post #3 by Abiskoo, and you will see a line:
Code:
sbd: assuming write through
   sbd: sbd1
if you can find something like that from dmesg that will show you what to put in fstab. His fstab would look like /dev/sdb1 /mnt/<devicename> ...

make a directory in /mnt then as root try mount /dev/sda /mnt/directoryyoumade

usually works just fine

Good luck
