    Usb device destroyed

    Ok, I admit I just finished the 2.6.10 kernel in 10.1 and my usb drive (/dev/sda1) returns the error message on boot and on mount: "mount: special device /dev/sda1 does not exist" I look, and its true, the file does not. I have hotplug enabled at boot, but this shouldnt have to do with that, does it?

    I upgraded the kernel to .11 but still there is no usb device

    Have you tried /dev/sda ? Some drives work on this.

    Does it appear when you run
    fdisk -l
    (as root)?

    Try cat /proc/bus/usb/devices. Do you see any device ?

    The first 2 things, no. When I use cat it is found here and says this:

    Ok I think i might be on to something.. I try to start the module sd_mod but when I type "modprobe sd_mod" I get a response that it cannot be found. So this means I dont have the correct kernel modules, right? And if so, how can I get them please?
