Question How to use pen drive in FC3


Hi All,
I have recently installed FC3 on my laptop.
I am facing two problems.
1. I am not able to use my usb flash drive (pen drives.) there is no /dev/sda1 device.
2. I have dual boot m/c with WinXP and linux. I am not able to mount windows NTFS partition.

all are requested to help me out.
thanks
nandac

Please tell us the commands that you use to mount each of them
Please post content of file /etc/fstab

Check how the pendrive is recognized. You can use dmesg after you've inserted it. It will show you something like /dev/sda or /dev/sda1. Once you know what it is, try mount /dev/sd?? -t vfat /mnt/cdrom. /mnt is where media is usually mounted (might be called /media); in the given example it will mount it where usually the cdrom is mounted.

If you get errors, please post them.

You really could have done a search related to this and would have found lots of help. You need to get an RPM for the NTFS module (see this), install it, then load the module ("modprobe ntfs").

You might as well show us what dmesg says when you plug in your USB device.

I can not see from here what the output of the dmesg command is.
