How do you get a flash drive to work?
I need to get my flash drive working in Linux, This is what I have done.
Bus 001 Device 010: ID 0483:1307 SGS Thomson Microelectronics Cytronix 6in1 card reader
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0409:0058 NEC Corp. HighSpeed Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
This is from lsmod:
usb_storage 65984 0
usblp 11264 0
usbcore 104312 4 usb_storage,usblp,ehci_hcd
I have this in fstab:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/flashdrive vfat owner,users 0 0
I issue this command " mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/flashdrive " then I get "must specify filesystem type" message and the light on the flashdrive blinks off then on.
Then I issue this command "mount -t vfat /dev/sda /mnt/flashdrive " I get " wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1, or too many mounted file systems"
I have also tried msdos and auto for filesystem type and still does not work.
I have read in another forum about needing to enable vfat support or something in the kernel BUT!! I already had this drive mounted and deleted some quickbooks files off of it so it was working somehow.
