USB drive detected in /proc/usb, but not listed as /dev/sda: what to do?
I've got a 40 GB drive that was in a notebook that crapped out. I've put it in an external USB enclosure and have tried connecting it to a Windows notebook. WinXP Disk Management doesn't recognize or see the drive.
Next I've tried the same notebook booting up in Knoppix 5.01. Knoppix sees the device, that is, it's listed in /proc/bus/usb/001/005, but there is no entry for the drive in /dev. So, no /dev/sda1, no /dev/sdb1, nada.
I've looked in many places but don't see how to get a /dev entry so I try mounting it. Any suggestions to share?
