Background: The system is a SunBlade 1000 using OS 5.8 with Solaris 8. The box has 4 USB ports, 2 of which are used and 2 are available for other devices. It also has a Removable Media Manager, though it does not "see" any devices attached to a USB port.
Question: I plug in a thumb drive (128 MB) to one of the 2 available USB ports, but the system does not seem to recognize it. Then I run devfsadm, which runs sucessfully. I can now see a symblic link in /dev/dsk displayed as follows:
mass-storage0 -> ../../devices/pci@8,700000/usb@5,3/storage@3:devctl
I have no idea how to read this. If I cold just find the device, I think I could mount it, and then access is. Yes?
Any ideas on what to do next?
