    Problem while mounting the USB flash drive


    Dear All,

    I have just do the necessary changes in the /mnt folder and my /etc/fstab file for detecting the USB flash drive into my PC and my PC is also detecting the flash drive at /mnt/usbstick and shows the contents there also, but when i try to mount it through the command, it shows me that
    "mount: fs type 0 not supported by kernel"
    what kind of problem is that and what could be the solution for that?

    Thanks in Advance,
    Nishant

    Hi !!

    what command are you using ???
    mostly USB drives have FAT32 system... use vfat or auto with mount .......

    Thanks,
