Re: Getting photos from USB compactFlash into linux

I've always wanted automounter to work. I thought of it as mounting an NFS disk on another
computer, but it would be cool if it works for flash.
It's still not working, and I wonder if the compactflash reader hardware is
burned out or if the flash card is not formated:

root@a2000xp:/#  mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /usb
mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device
root@a2000xp:/# ls -lad /usb
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4096 Jul 28 19:47 /usb

Oh well, still not working.  I'll try some more things
in the morning. Thanks.

As root
fdisk -l /dev/sda

A mate of mine has a problem: his "disk" wanders. First time it's sda, then sdb etc. You might check for that:
for d in a b c d e f g h i j k; do fdisk -l /dev/sd{d};done
