BLK_DEV_SD is the scsi disk support kernel module. You need this loaded or built-in or USB mass storage will not work.

You may also need CHR_DEV_SG module but I haven't tested this yet.

When you plug in your usb pen and check dmesg, you should see some lines like 'device attached to sda' or similar and somewhere it will say actual device number - ie sda1 etc.

insmod: BLK_DEV_SD: no module by that name found
Kitchen:/# insmod CHR_DEV_SD

My Debian system doesn't seem to have those two modules. I'll begin searching for them.. sigh I might just go back to slack

See this is what is gettin me angry... message *13 this thread says "Direct Access ANSI SCSI Revision: 02, yet following perfectly good advice, I cant find two mods, BLK_DEV_SD and CHR_DEV_SG, which a are needed for scsi support. Is this a Debian disconnect? I would think if Debian modifies the packages to suit thier needs they would doc it, but I can't find it.

You will need to check your kernel config to see if the 2 modules have been included or not. If not then you will need to recompile your kernel. Add USB storage support and SCSI disk support at least.

Also you may want to try modprobe if insmod doesn't work. I have had problems with insmod not finding mods properly.
