Subject: Re: Mounting USB camera
i see no mentions of /dev/sd* devices anywhere in the 2.4.26
logs. be sure you have scsi disk support compiled or the module
(sd_mod) loaded. i would guess it would still be /dev/sda1,
since the cdrw wouldn't take that spot (it's an sg or sr).
otherwise, i'm not sure. the cdrecord output looks pretty
promising, so i'm guessing it's just a missing module.
That was it: the error was in the SCSI modules, not in the USB. I somehow
lost CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SD (generating sd_mod) from my .config file.
