    Hi all,
    Just try to mount USB key 256M on my FC2 box. I have kernel modules
    like usb_storage, sg, vfat, sd_mod, scsi_mod.
    When plug in I see:

    scsi2 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
      Vendor: OTi Model: Flash Disk Rev: 2.00
      Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
    sda: Unit Not Ready, sense:
    Current : sense = 70 6
    ASC=28 ASCQ= 0
    Raw sense data:0x70 0x00 0x06 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x0a 0x00 0x00 0x00
    0x00 0x28 0x00 0x00 0x
    00 0x00 0x00
    sda : READ CAPACITY failed.
    sda : status=1, message=00, host=0, driver=08
    Current sd: sense = 70 6
    ASC=28 ASCQ= 0
    Raw sense data:0x70 0x00 0x06 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x0a 0x00 0x00 0x00
    0x00 0x28 0x00 0x00 0x
    00 0x00 0x00
    sda: Write Protect is off
    sda: Mode Sense: 03 00 00 00
    sda: assuming drive cache: write through
     sda: unknown partition table
    Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi3, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
    Attached scsi generic sg0 at scsi3, channel 0, id 0, lun 0, type 0
    USB Mass Storage device found at 4
    usbcore: registered new driver usb-storage
    USB Mass Storage support registered.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    So the command:

    # mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbkey

    gives me the error:

    mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device

    But when I try:

    # mount -t vfat /dev/sda /mnt/usbkey (yes, /dev/sda instead of /dev/sda1)

    it works !
    Any explanations ?

    Thank you in advance
