    usb flash drive won't mount


    I have just begun to use Puppy 2.15 CE final live CD on my old Toshiba laptop with a USB 1.10 port. I have tried plugging in 3 different flash drives and none of them have been recognised.

    I have used the drive mounter and USB viewer - pressed the refresh buttons and still nothing

    When entering
    # probedisk or # fdisk -l
    only the cdrom and HD are recognised.

    Output of:
    # lsmod | grep hci
    ohci_hcd 20564 0
    usbcore 126116 3 usb_storage,ohci_hcd

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    1. Plug-in ur USB stick

    2. Do lsusb to check, if ur USB is detected.

    3. Once it is shown, then do

    mkdir /mnt/usb; mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb

    This shud do.

    Did :
    [B]mkdir /mnt/usb; mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb[a/B]

    and output said: No such device or address

    Any other ideas?
