Mounting an USB drive

  1. I can generally do it with mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbdrive but since I installed an USB webcam, I have no idea what /dev/sdxx to use.

    I've tried /dev/sdb1 but it doesn't work.

    I only have two USB ports on this machine ( i815 chipset I believe ) & RH9 so Kernel 2.4.20. Any ideas how I could get this thing to mount without having to reboot without the webcam ?

    PS. yes I've tried unplugging the webcam & then doing a mount /dev/sda1 again but still no go.

    Use lsusb to list your USB devices

    You can also modify your hotplug configuration to make it automatically mount the flash disk.
