Question about using usb pen drive
Ok I got my flash drive to work but I have a few question
1.Why does dmesg | grep -i "SCSI device" show my drive as
"SCSI device sde: 2001888 512-byte hdwr sectors (1025 MB)" but in fdisk -l /dev/sde show it as
Disk /dev/sde: 1024 MB, 1024966656 bytes 32 heads, 63 sectors/track, 993 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2016 * 512 = 1032192 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sde1 1 992 999813+ 6 FAT16
which say's sde1
2. Shouldn't the light on my drive go off when I unmount?
This is my fstab
/dev/sde1 /home/specialist125/Desktop/flash auto auto,user,exec 0 0
3. Is their a way to set this up where it auto mounts on plug in instead of going to the drive and selecting mount. I have used knoopix and I mounted on plug in
Ok I thought It was working properly, well it was but stoped. Yesterday I could mout and unmount the drive then I restared my computer and this is when I realize
1. If I plug in the flash drive before boot up I doesnt make my computer hang like before but I can't mount the drive after log in? why?
2. Like I said yesterday the dive would mount and unmout but the light on the flash drive would not shut off. After rebooting without putting the flash disk in the dive I can log in and mount but it will not let me unmount the drive now and if I take it out I can't remount it at a later time without shutting down and restarting.Why?
How can I resolve these problems?
I'm new to linux and I'm learning my way and keeping a log of problems I run into so I like to know why things work the way they do instead of just doing stuff.
