Flash Drive in SuSE 9.1


Hello.
I just installed SuSE 9.1 and I'm trying to use my flash drive which has worked on Mandrake 9.2. Mandrake 9.2 detected the device under /dev/scsi/I don't remember the rest. When I go to /dev/scsi in SuSE 9.1 the folder is empty. The program SuSE plugger detects the flash drive as AccFast USB-MSC Disk. My friend told me to type this in the shell
cat /proc/scsi/scsi
and I get this
Attached devices:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
Vendor: AccFast Model: USB-MSC Disk IN Rev: T
Type: Direct-Access ANSI S
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 01
Vendor: AccFast Model: USB-MSC Disk EX Rev: T
Type: Direct-Access ANSI S

I would like to know where my flash drive is located under SuSE 9.1.
Thanks

SuSE mounts external media (inculding USB flash/external hd drives) in /media

just use konqueror to go to /media and you should see a folder (mount point) along the lines of usb-storage......

if its not there just type "mount" at the console and see where the drive is mounted

Typing "fdisk -l" (that's lower case L, not a one) should show the device.
Then you can "mount <device> <mount_point>"

When I plug in my USB drive multiple windows start popping up followed by a could not open error box. I normally use the manual method anyway, but the multiple windows are annoying. Obviously a "feature" that needs correcting.
So far, updates and the newest SUSE kernel do not solve the problem.

I used the fdisk -l command to see where the device was located at.
Thanks you all.
