Quick question on USB mounting
Just wanted to check, if I do what b0uncer has told vampirelord to do here will that make my usb ports active? For example if I was to plug in another USB device would it detect it like in windows?

Heres the post i'm talking about:

If sda1 fails to work, then try /dev/sda instead of /dev/sda1 (and if it fails, sdb, sdb1, sda4...I've seen many names on my one usb-flash memory, no idea why they change all the time...but sda1 works most of the time, and most of the time it doesn't work, sda it?)

If not, is there anything I can do to make this happen?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

For future reference, please simply ask that the thread be moved rather than to start a new, duplicate one. Thanks
