    cant mount USB Flash drive


    When I plug my usb falsh drive into my new Gentoo box (which is running a 2.6.7 kernel), no /dev/sda1 appears. I can mount the flash drive when I am using the kernel off the 2004.2 LiveCD. This is the releveant output from dmesg:

    Code:
    usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using address 2
    usb 1-5: control timeout on ep0out
    ehci_hcd 0000:00:02.2: Unlink after no-IRQ?  Different ACPI or APIC
    settings may help.
    usb 1-5: control timeout on ep0out
    usb 1-5: device not accepting address 2, error -110
    usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using address 3
    usb 1-5: control timeout on ep0out
    usb 1-5: control timeout on ep0out
    usb 1-5: device not accepting address 3, error -110
    usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using address 4
    usb 1-5: control timeout on ep0out
    Can someone please tell me what my problem is (or what logs they would like posted)?

    Firstly, sorry about leaving this so long, I have been on hols.

    I plug the flash drive in, and when I try the mount step (mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/somemountpoint), I get:

    mount: special device /dev/sda1 does not exist

    That is all I get on my console. If I run dmesg, I get what I posted above (the 1st post).

    Make sure the sda1 is connected...
    type in terminal
    Code:
    fdisk -l   (FDSIK -L)
    the output will be all drive partition notice the sd* that your usb is on, and you'll be able to mount it without any problem

    This command lists all my hd* devices but says nothing about sd*. There are no /dev/sd* files either.
