usb stick

i running crux 1.3 distro. i wanted to get my 128mb usb stick but i can't get it to work.

lsmod gives:


Module                          Size      Used by      Not Tained
usb-storage                26456    0 (unused)
usbcore                      42248    0 [usb-storage]

the usb stick is connected and the light is on.

but as many docs says to find /dev/sda1, there is none... i don't know where to look.

dmesg in the end says:


usb.c: registered new driver usb-storage
USB Mass Storage support registered

does anyone have any idea how to fix this?
would appretiate any help. thanks

What does dmesg have to say after you have plugged it in? Boot without the USB memory connected and then plug it in. Check the dmesg output after that.

In order to get USB working you may also have to load a USB host driver, like uhci-hcd or ohci-hcd, in the event that these are not built into the kerne or auto-loaded on startup.

hi Håk.

I included uhci (usb 2.0) into kernel and recompiled it. this is what it says on dmesg


hub.c: new USB device 00:1d.2-1, assigned address 2
usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x781/0x7112) is not claimed by any active driver.
usb.c: USB disconnect on device 00:1d.2-1 address 2
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...

and now, i cannot modprobe usbcore. only usb-storage... ???

and from /proc/scsi-usb-storage-0/1 i get
