Cannot mount flashdrive


This is what I have done:

mkdir /mnt/memstick

chmod -R 4777 /mnt/memstick

My fstab:

/dev/sdb /mnt/memstick auto rw,users,noauto 0 0

(because "lshw |grep -9 -i cruzer" gave me this:


*-scsi
physical id: 1
bus info: usb@1:4
logical name: scsi5
capabilities: emulated scsi-host
configuration: driver=usb-storage
*-disk
description: SCSI Disk
product: U3 Cruzer Micro
vendor: SanDisk
physical id: 0.0.0
bus info: scsi@5:0.0.0
logical name: /dev/sdb
version: 8.02
serial: u
size: 3835MiB (4022MB)
capabilities: removable
*-medium
)

then:

~# mount /mnt/memstick
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

I have "automount" installed

What shall I do?

Thanks, Hearthstone.

You're trying to mount the physical drive, you need to mount the filesystem.

It's probably /dev/sdb1, but post the output of "fdisk -l /dev/sdb" just in case.
