    Key Drive...will this work?


    I have a 512MB scandisk USB keydrive that I'd like to trasnfer data to my Linux Fedora Core 2 machine.

    Can someone please show me how to mount or get this thing visable?

    I don't really know what I am doing so any help would be great.

    Thanks

    Here is my flash entry oin /etc/fstab

    USB flash drives works through the scsi emulation layer so the device is /dev/sda. My flash is /dev/sda1. I think I once had a zip drive that used /dev/sda4.

    I use /mnt/flash for my mountpoint. The auto tells the mount command to
    figure out the filesystem which is usually fat. The user option lets users
    mount the drive.
    Code:
    /dev/sda1               /mnt/flash              auto    noauto,user     0 0

    mounting flash drives

    look in your hardware browser, it will tell you what it is using

    /dev/hda1/

    /dev/hdb1/


    and so on.......

    here is a good line for your /etc/fstab

    /dev/sda1 /mnt/flashdrive auto noauto,users,noatime,async

    and you need to create a mount point.....

    /mnt/flashdrive

    i hope this helps.
