How can I mount a USB mass-storage device (Toshiba PDR-M5 digital
camera)? The kernel messages are as follows:
umass0 at uhub0 port 1 configuration 1 interface 0
umass0: TOSHIBA PDR-M, rev 1.00/1.00, addr 2
umass0: using SCSI over BBB-P
scsibus0 at umass0: 2 targets, 1 luns per target
scsibus0: waiting 2 seconds for devices to settle...
sd0 at scsibus0 target 1 lun 0: <TOSHIBA, PDR, 1.00> SCSI2 0/direct removable
sd0: mode sense (4) returned nonsense; using fictitious geometry
sd0: 64000 KB, 62 cyl, 64 head, 32 sec, 512 bytes/sect x 128000 sectors
From the messages above, it seems that the kernel correctly identifies the
camera as a usb mass-storage device. However, when I try to mount the
device, I get the following messages:
root:~# mount /dev/sd0d /mnt
mount_ffs: /dev/sd0d on /mnt: Input/output error
So I have several questions:
* Is 'ffs' the correct filesystem type?
* Is /dev/sd0d the correct device?
* Why am I getting an i/o error?
I have had no problems mounting this on linux, using the 'vfat' filesystem
type. Thoughts and ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
PS: Is this the right list to send this to? Or should I send it to the
x86-specific list? Thanks again.
