help! cannot mount memory_card in mandrake 9.1


i have had no problem mounting my card by simply doing this:

mount /dev/sda1

until today when i had to do a lazy unmount

umount -l /dev/sda1

to get it to unmount

now, when i try to mount i get this:

mount: can't find /dev/sda1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

what does this mean?

anyone with knowledge on this, i am greatly appreciative!

TIA,

jxl

Have you modified your /etc/fstab file?

There should be a line something like this (the exact options may vary but the important thing is that it starts with /dev/sda1):

/dev/sda1 /mnt/usb auto noatimes,noauto,users,sync 0 0

Can you please post the contents of your /etc/fstab? Perhaps there is an error in it.
