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?

Hi everyone - firstly thanks for all your help.

Case: I understand where you are coming from - I have had the issue myself! I ended up formatting the card in a camera and then all was fine. However I don't think that issue is my issue as I have used all these drives on the zaurus many times before (including a USB hard drive) and they have not been reformatted (in one case they haven't even been accessed!) since. I have now tried an external USB HDD and i get the same result - under system info, device, usb an "External HDD" shows but it still says "Driver: (None)" so I think we can eliminate the partitioning issue.

To explain my system fully I started with a full sharp system - installed a bunch of stuff off meanies page, etc. Then when I wanted to use Quasar media player I installed an updated kernel (using a ZImage file, and updater.sh BUT NO tools.rar) I did NOT however install any new packages, etc on the machine - I just flashed the kernel. Was this the wrong thing to do? I don't seem to be having issues with anything else - just automounting USB drives.

I have tried installing the usb modules (thanks Jon_J) and it didn't help.

I'm trying to understand where the problem is - if the driver is not recognised what is that normally a symptom of?
