    Problems with USB Flash Drive


    I just installed bt2. I stick in my flash drive and nothing happens. I do a lsusb to see what usb devices are detected and I get this.

    Bus 5 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 4 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 2 Device 2: ID 0483:2016 SGS Thomson Microelectronics Fingerprint Reader
    Bus 2 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 3 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 1 Device 1: ID 0000:0000

    Not sure what to do. Please Help.

    after inserting the usb flash disk run this .

    tail -s 3 -f /var/log/messages this is to know wish inode device the kernel assign for the usb flash let's say sda1 then to mount it

    mount -t (FS) /dev/sda1 DIR

    where FS can be vfat,ext3,reiserfs ........
    and DIR is a directory that you choose .

    I'm not sure if bt2 uses HAL for auto mounting ,but i think so , so you have to add yourself in the plugdev group (probably the name is different in bt2 !).

    Regards.
    Linux is not only an operating system, it's a philosophy.
