    Re: this is the ror

    Hi,

    Try to enter on /proc/bus/usb/devices and find the reference of ur usb perepheral.
    If it's there;

    create a directory on /mnt/usb
    try to mount the perepheral (if it's a flash disk for example) : mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb

    good luck

    mounting gives :(

    mount -t usbfs none /proc/bus/usb

    it results in

    mount: none already mounted or /proc/bus/usb busy
    mount: according to mtab, usbfs is already mounted on /proc/bus/usb

    now i hope eror is clear to experts

    mohsin, try the following in the command line:
    Code:
    su
    enter the rootpassword, then
    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/usb
    mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb
    that should work, for a fuller tutorial, have a look here;

    mohsin, what filesystem is the drive? is it FAT32 or ntfs?

    try the two following options:
    Code:
    su
    now enter the root password, then
    Code:
    mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb
    if that doesn't work try:
    Code:
    mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb
