Force USB mount in Linux


Recommended Posts

I tried a variety of things on from other forums, but none of them worked.

We have a labful of openSUSE 10.2 boxes that won't auto mount USB flash drives. It says usb-storage is active, but the drive doesn't show up when I probe it.

Any suggestions.

What format are your USB devices? What are they? USB Flash Drives?

If they are FAT32 or NTFS, I had to "Safely Remove Hardware" in Windows before I was able to mount them in Linux.

Not sure if that's your problem.

I've heard similar reports on forums. It was a student that complained.

I tried a random drive I found in the store room and it also didn't work, so I'm not sure on the specifics.

I'll look into this. Thanks.

Thanks for the help, I've left work for now and will get back to you tomorrow when I can check the labs.
