Trying to mount Lexar Media Jumpdrive 2.0 Pro


Well, suddenly I start posting - (I made another post earlier tonight on a different topic) - probably because there is something on Linux that I absolutley need, ASAP. But before doing that, I need to get SOME way to transfer files over from Windows to Linux.

So here's the deal. I'm trying to mount my Jump Drive 2.0 Pro.

After googling around, I came up with a thread on this same forum with some guy having trouble using his USB camera on the same version of Linux. Naturally, I'm using the commands he said he has used, and I'm actually getting a few results. But I still can't get it to mount. Please know that I'm a complete newbie, so I'd appreciate some simple answers - if I sound like I know what I'm doing, I don't - it's only because I'm using commands used in that other thread.

Please also note that right now, I have no network connectivity on Linux - so I'm typing this from another computer with my laptop beside me.

Anyway....

I'm running Slackware 10.1 kernel version 2.4.29 i686. Hotplug is enabled at boot.

There is no difference when I run fdisk -l before I plug in the Jump Drive, and when I plug it in.

The result when I run dmesg | grep usb before I plug in the Jump Drive is:

usb.c: registered new driver usbdevfs
usb.c: registered new driver hub
usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 2
usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 3
usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 4
usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 5
usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x5dc/0x200) is not claimed by any active driver.
usb.c: registered new driver usb-storage
usb.c: USB disconnect on device 00:1d.7-3 address 2
usb.c: USB disconnect on device 00:1d.7-3 address 3
usb.c: USB disconnect on device 00:1d.7-3 address 4

Now, the result when I run dmesg | grep usb after I plug in the Jump Drive is the exact same. There is no difference.

When I run lsusb when the drive is NOT plugged in, I get:
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

When I run lsusb when the drive is plugged in, I get:
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 05dc:0200 Lexar Media, Inc.

So, any ideas on what I need to do?

Thanks,
David

Custom built kernel? If so, you need scsi generic and scsi disk support built in or as loaded modules.

I don't think it's custom built. I installed it.

But at any rate, if I had these modules, it would probably work, I'm assuming. How would I go about getting and/or configuring these modules?

You can try modprobing them. scsi generic is 'sg', I believe. You can always use
Code:
find /lib/modules/`uname -r` -name '*.ko'
to see a list of all modules currently installed on your system.
