Hi Everyone,

I know threads like this are everywhere but trust me I have searched and tried MANY commands and I can't get this memory stick to work.

I am running Sharprom with an updated Kernel and meanies automounter-c3000_0.5.0_arm.ipk

I have mounted USB hard drives many times in the past but after trying a few different drives (formatted as FAT16 and FAT32) i keep getting a similar error.

If I look in system info under device-USB-* USB MASS STORAGE

I get vendor, product, class and ID information however under Driver I get
"Driver: (none)".

Obviously the drive is not showing up anywhere - i can't do fdisks on sda, sda1, sdb, sdb1, etc as they aren't there.

I know I have probably missed something which makes me look stupid but what is it?

I would first try an external USB hard drive. (One that has it's own power supply, like a full size drive plugged into an AC adapter and to a wall outlet) to see if USB Storage works, then read below...

I don't know if this will help, and Cacko Full already has this included, but maybe, somehow this module got corrupted.
I'm attaching "usb-storage-modules-2.4.20_1.23--lite-1_arm.ipk"
This was designed for Cacko Lite, since "Lite" was missing various modules, etc.
Notice the word "Lite" in the package name.
If you install this to a Zaurus with Cacko Full, you must not uninstall it, as this may remove some of the original files contained in Cacko Full.
It is not recommended to install these kind of modules on top of Cacko Full, because it takes additional space in your NAND area, since Cacko Full already includes these kind of modules.

I'm only saying, as a last resort, and you don't mind the extra 130kb of space taken, install this package, reboot, then try your USB Storage device.

I just noticed you are running the Sharp ROM, as mentioned in your first post.
You could try the attached package, if it doesn't work, uninstall it.

2nd EDIT
If you do download the attachment, make sure to rename it to:
The forum replaces dashes with underscores.
