    hard drives and thumb drives not showing up in /dev


    My hard drive is not showing up under /dev. When I ls /dev/hd*, no entries appear. My /etc/fstab indicates / is being mounted to /dev/hda3, and the messages during boot indicate hda is being accessed.

    Another problem I have which may or may not be related is that when I plug in a USB thumb drive, with the scsi_mod, sd_mod, usbcore, usb-storage and ehci_hcd, no entry for sda shows up. The log messages indicate that it recognizes it as a scsi device sda, but I'm unable to mount it because there is no /dev/sda entry.
