i saw that there is i did "modprobe usb-ohci" thenn "modprobe usb_storage" ahd this gives me the following :

oot@MisT:/home/mist# modprobe usb-ohci
root@MisT:/home/mist# modprobe usb_storage
modprobe: Can't locate module usb_storage
all this is the result after enabling the hotplug and starting it by "/etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug start"...
thenn tried to mount and it still gives me the same error...that /usb is not a valid block device...

anything else that i can do, plzz help..thxxx

rgistered,maybe you should make "hotplug" enable at boot by:

chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug

After you did it,please reboot your computer and see whether they are detected.

Try more.
