Thumbs up

hey, i figured it out. add the following to '/etc/fstab' and do 'mount -a'

Code:
/dev/sdb1        /mnt/flash       auto        uid=1000,rw      0   0

I mount the flash stick in /mnt/flash. Just assign the tight permissions to that folder

My flash drive 'died' unexpectedly

The drive is recognised, i mean, for example, in XP it is detected and it installs the default driver for USB mass storage.

It simply worked always, i could then access the new created unit in My Computer. But strangely enough (and i dont know if explicitly due to Linux) my drive came unusable. It is, the drive is detected, and i can't either format it, nor access its data.

It simply has become like corrupted or something, but it's very strange to be detected and not be able to format or read it...

In XP it says 'there is not any device' or something like it when i try to format it.

What could be?

Thanks.

Now that sounds weird. A "real" HW problem could explain it. A very remote possibility, but it might have burned down. I am sure you already have googled to find the way to "re-initialize" it, right?

reinitialize? what's that? :S

i'm just near to open with (forcing it) with a screwdriver or something...

after all... there it seems that there is nothing more to do...

i've tried everything.. fsck's, mkfs's... fdisk's...

all gives strange texts saying that.. couldnt read sector 0 with probetabledisk() or something like this... and well....

but what is initialization? any kind of hw reset? i only see, physicially, the read-only <-> write switch

thanks
