I'm expiriencing problems in mount an external usb hdd from Transcend on my Linux system.
I have connected my usb device to my red hat system and managed to find it when excecuting tail -f /var/log/messages -n 25 and it appeared as a sdb scsi drive. I then checked my dmesg but could not find any scsi device. I then checked my /proc/scsi/scsi and could find my usd device details.I then created the following directory as my mount point /mnt/usb .
When I try to mount the device using the following command mount -t vfat /dev/sdb /mnt/usb then decive does not mount as it is unable to locate /dev/sdb.
Experts will you kindly assist me in providing me with a way of mount a usb device under Linux.
