Mounting USB Harddisk
I just got myself a 40 GB USB harddisk. But I am unable to mount it on
Command "mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda" gives following output:
"mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device"
When I do "/sbin/fdisk -l /dev/sda", there is no output, I just get a
command prompt. I also tried /sdb, /sdc etc. None work.
In /dev, /sda etc. do exist.
I did "tail -s 2 -f /var/log/messages" to make it read message log, and
then I connected the USB disk. This is what it said:
Apr 1 10:02:40 vikas kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:1d.7-1, assigned
Apr 1 10:02:43 vikas usb.agent: usb-storage: loaded successfully
Can anybody help me mount the disk?
