Sorry, I did something wrong when posting. This is the message again:


I have some problems when trying to mount a cruzer mini 256 MB using SuSE 8.2, but I've made some progress; maybe this can help:

When I insert the flash drive, the computer makes a sound and the drive's led turns on; for about two minutes, the system tries to recognize it, (I do nothing); then the light turns off and later the same first sound is heard: the system gave up. At that point, I type the following commands:

# modprobe -r usb-storage
# modprobe usb-storage
# exit
% mount /mnt/usb # I added this mount point in the /etc/fstab file
% cp something /mnt/usb
% ls

My /etc/fstab look like this:

/mnt/usb/dev/hda3 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/hda1 /windows/C ntfs ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=iso8859-1 0 0
/dev/hda2 swap swap pri=42 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs noauto 0 0
/dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usb ext3,vfat defaults,noauto,users 0 0

Of course this is not exactly the way the pen drive is suppoused to work, but this is better than not working at all. I'm still looking for a better solution.
