|0000772||CentOS-4||Missing Component||public||2005-01-25 01:02||2013-03-23 21:37|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0000772: Cannot mount USB HDD/ USB Flash Drive|
|Description||1. Identify the drives only if they are plugged when computer start up.|
2. Identified USB HDD in fstab, but failed to mount.
3. Mounted USB Flash drive, but subdirectory reported damaged. (Tried this one
on a M$ XP, no problem accessing the files at all.)
I can mount these USB drives using CentOS 3. Is there a weired change in
CentOS 4 beta about the mounting?
|Tags||No tags attached.|
What vendor and model these devices are? Your report is almost useless
without these details, the developers can not guess. What do you get in
/var/log/messages (tail -f /var/log/messages before inserting the device), what
does lsusb say? I'll try my USB flash tomorow...

I used a SanDisk Cruzer Mini 128MB and I/O Magic GigaBank 2.2GB.
Reinstalled CentOS 3.4 right after that and it works fine so far.
I don't think the /var/log/messages and lsusb would tell any story about
CentOS 4 since I'm using 3.4 now.

It works fine for me. Here are the appropriate entries from /var/log/messages

Browses files fine, writes to files on usb fine. This is using vfat filesystem.
Possibly the reporting user is using a proprietary filesystem?
|looking at ths issue ....|
|i've tried an external usb hdd and a usb flash stick... both work for me|
I experienced the same issue on CentOS 4.1 with a Sandisk Cruizer 512 MB flash disk. Whenever, the flashdisk is inserted to the USB port, no event is noted in /var/log/messages. /proc/bus/usb/devices does not have an entry for the flash disk as well.
By using trial and error, I was able to find a quick fix. I unloaded uhci_hcd module and reloaded it again. After doing the reload, the flash disk gets mounted automatically by hotplug and a nautilus icon for the disk appears on the desktop. Subsequent inserts also automounts.
I added "rmmod uhci_hcd" and "modprobe uhci_hcd" in /etc/rc.local
|I can confirm this problem. USB drives (IDE drives in USB enclosures used for backup) work in 7.3, 9, Centos-3, Centos-5.0 (haven't tested 5.1 yet), but not in Centos-4.4. I will be testing Centos-4.5 this week - and if it doesn't work, I'll have to migrate 7.3 systems to 5.x instead. This is frustrating because the Centos-4.4 LiveCD boots on a number of system where the Centos-5 LiveCD refuses to boot. But it is of no use if backups are on removable USB drives.|
|In the case of Centos-4.4 LiveCD, the USB drive won't register in /proc/bus/usb/devices. When displaying usb/devices, the cat command hangs for several minutes, with usb errors (-71) appearing in messages. The drive is not present when it finishes. Same thing with both USB1.1 and USB2.0 adapters.|
|I tested Centos-4.5, and it mounts USB drives with no problem. So it is only 4.4 that is broken. This would be minor if there was a Centos-4.5 LiveCD. In most cases, the CentOS-5.0 LiveCD can be used, but there are machines (e.g. Dell 440SC) where it won't boot.|
I had what may be the same problem.
My 80GB USB (IDE?) drive FujitsuMHV2080AH in not recognised in Centos 5.4 2.6.28-164.el5.
When I connect my 80GB USD disk to Vista, it works as FAT and also as NTFS.
(dmesg | tail)
end_request: I/O error dev sdb sector 0
sd 4:0:0:0: SCSI error return code 0x10070000
(mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb /media/)
Error reading boot sector: I/O error .........................
Failed to mount '/dev/sdb': i/o error ...........
NTFS is either inconsistent or there is a hardware fault ............
The drive was freshly formatted in NTFS, has a few files on it.
It is annoying that Windoze can read and write to the USB drive but not Centos.
|CentOS4 is EOL.|
