external USB acomdata drive



I am trying to mount an external 80GB acomdata usb drive on a Sarge
laptop with a 2.6.12 kernel. I get the following output from hotplug in
syslog:

Jul  7 08:16:00 moonglum kernel: hub 1-0:1.0: over-current change on port 1

Jul  7 08:16:05 moonglum udev[6144]: creating device node '/dev/usb/hiddev0'


However, when I try and mount the drive, I can an error saying wrong
fstype:

% sudo mount -t vfat /dev/uba /mnt/extdrive
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/uba,
       missing codepage or other error
       (could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
       ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

I verified that the filesystem is fat32 by mounting it on my work laptop
(WinXP). Can someone give me a hint on what to do next or what further
information I might need to provide? I think that all the correct kernel
modules are loaded...
