usb add on card mount external hardrive


Hi Everyone

I need some help! ( don't we all )

I have a external hardrive with a 13GB file that i need to copy .
My server does not have USB 2 support so it is extreemly slow to copy that file across . I have tested it on another pc with Usb2 on it and it copies in 10 min .

I bought a add on card Usb2 supported by linux and linux picks it up however i cannot mount my drive.

if i mount it on onboard it works fine.

if i mount it on the addon card then it says

"mount: /dev/sdb1 is not a valid block size"

Command i use is " mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb"

Please if some one could assist me i would appreciate it"

Thank you

Look at the output of the command dmesg to see if the OS is recognizing the drive. The device ID might not be /dev/sdb.
