Odd USB flash drive problem.

Ok, so I finally bought myself a USB flash drive(a crucial gizmo). Well I'm having a wierd probelm with is under Arch. When I plug it in, the only thing that appears is /dev/sda. So to get /dev/sda1 to appear, so I can mount the drive, I have to try and mount or access /dev/sda. Anyone know whay this happens?

I'm running the stock 2.6 arch kernel, with uhci_hcd and usb-storage loaded and udev.

Thanks!

You'll need to add an entry for it in your /etc/fstab file if you haven't done so already.  In fstab, the mount point will likely be sda1.

Re: Odd USB flash drive problem.

Yeah, I have an entry in my fstab...

/dev/sda1 /mnt/flshdrive vfat user,noauto 0 0

It's just that /dev/sda1 doesn't appear until I try to access /dev/sda. It's wierd.


Thanks for the reply though!

Re: Odd USB flash drive problem.

Had the same problem. I had to reformat my drive (in linux- after you backup your files of course, fdisk /dev/sda, mkfs.vfat /dev/sda I believe should do it) and it mounted after that.
