external hard drive
 
i have Mandrake 10.0, i recently got a Maxtor 80GB external hard drive USB, and mandrake for what reason won't recognize it, why?

david_ross 08-07-2005 01:24 PM

Welcome to LQ.

What format is the filesystem on it?

dragonkeeper 08-07-2005 01:26 PM

fat 32 i think

david_ross 08-07-2005 01:45 PM

That should be ok. What error do you get when you try to mount it?

dragonkeeper 08-07-2005 01:50 PM

the hard drive dosnt show up any where

david_ross 08-07-2005 01:56 PM

Can you post the output from running "fdisk -l" as root.

dragonkeeper 08-07-2005 02:03 PM

fdisk -l got me this

Disk /dev/hda: 122.9 GB, 122942324736 bytes

It doesn't look like Mandrake is seeing the usb device.

Do you have the usb mass storage modules loaded? What do you get from running "lsmod"?

Is there any sign of it connecting in the dmesg output? Can you post the output from:
dmesg | grep -E "usb|sd"

You missed a quote in the grep command.

Try disconnecting the device, loading the usb mass storage module with:
modprobe usb-storage

If that works then reconnect the device and post the output from:
dmesg | tail

It looks like there is a problem with the way it is connecting. Have you got more than one usb controller?

Can you post the output from:
lspci
lsusb -v

tredegar 08-09-2005 05:58 AM

Hmmm "error -110"
I had such trouble with this, trying to use a laCie USB drive: in the end I used its firewire alternative connection, and this works very well.

However, this post

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/history/343895

Recommends that you add acpi=noirq to your boot arguements. Perhaps you should try this.
