    Yoper v2.1 -- Can't Mount Lexar Jumpdrive


    Hey,
    I'm running Yoper, and I can't seem to mount my USB memory stick (lexar jumpdrive 128MB) I'll insert it, and the green light will go on, meaning that linux sees it, but i can't mount it. I've tried:
    Code:
    mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb
    on every sda there is but i always get:
    not a valid block device
    help would be greatly appreciated, since we do a lot at school on computers, so i'd like to be able to take my work home and not hafta use my dad's windows box!
    thanks

    After you plug it in, post the tail (maybe -n 15) of your /var/log/messages.
