    mount mocroSD card

    I'm running Fedora Core 5 with a 2.6.20 kernel.

    I want to mount my phone (motorola V360 as a normal usb pen).
    If I attach my phone under windows is automatically mounted as an usb pen, if I attach it on Fedora Core 5 I've got this message.

    [root@linbox ~]# mount /dev/sda /mnt
    mount: you must specify the filesystem type

    What is the problem any idea mates?

    The mount command requires a filesystem type. Simple!

    Assuming it is formatted with FAT12/16/32 then you can use the command
    mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/somefolder
    Note that /dev/sda is the drive, not the partition so you can not mount it - sda1 is the first partition on device sda.

    As long i can remember i never format my MIcroSD memory anyway here is the result of your command.

    [root@linbox ~]# mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/moto
    mount: /dev/sda1: can't read superblock

    What if it formated as NTFS?
