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.

Thanx John!
