    Mounting pendrive


    Since the recent updates I haven't been able to mount my 1GB pendrive. Is anyone else having this problem?

    Code:
    [root@vaio ~]# mount /dev/hdb /mnt/switch
    mount: you must specify the filesystem type
    [root@vaio ~]# mount /dev/sda /mnt/switch
    mount: you must specify the filesystem type
    Anyone know if I'm doing something wrong?

    ImNeat,

    did you try specifying a file system like:
    mount -t vfat /dev/hdb /mnt/switch
    just in case....


    regards

    Code:
    mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /mnt/switch
    did the trick. Thanks.
