Trying to mount a USB Hard Disk
 
Hi.

Working with Fedora Core 5, I'm trying to mount an external USB Hard Disk (Trekstor DataStation).

I switched on the Hard Disk I connected it via USB. However, I'm not able to find it (I'm using only shell). If I ll my /dev/ directory I find:
Code:

crw------- 1 root root  442,    0 Jul 12 01:55 usbdev1.1_ep00
crw------- 1 root root  442,    0 Jul 12 01:55 usbdev1.1_ep81
crw------- 1 root root  442, 2048 Jul 12 01:55 usbdev2.1_ep00
crw------- 1 root root  442, 2048 Jul 12 01:55 usbdev2.1_ep81
crw------- 1 root root  442, 2049 Jul 12 01:55 usbdev2.2_ep00
crw------- 1 root root  442, 2049 Jul 12 01:55 usbdev2.2_ep81
crw------- 1 root root  442, 4096 Jul 12 01:55 usbdev3.1_ep00
crw------- 1 root root  442, 4096 Jul 12 01:55 usbdev3.1_ep81
crw------- 1 root root  442, 4099 Jul 12 01:57 usbdev3.4_ep00
crw------- 1 root root  442, 4099 Jul 12 01:57 usbdev3.4_ep02
crw------- 1 root root  442, 4099 Jul 12 01:57 usbdev3.4_ep86

(there're more entries)

How can I find which my USB-HD is?

Thank you very much.

Dear,
unplug your USB drive
Type the command fdisk -l
(note down your disk list)
Then plug your USB
Type the command fdisk -l
Probably if you don't have SCSI or SATA , then your USB will be listed as /dev/sda1
suppose , for example you got a new fdisk result of /dev/sdb(or any)

mkdir /root/usb
mount /dev/sdb /root/usb.
cd /root/usb
here is your USB contents...
If you want it permanenetly add a permanent entry to /etc/fstab
ALL the BEST

usb flash drives and disks commonly also have partitions!!
so perhaps /dev/sdb1 ?
