Thread: USB stick not recognized

  1. #1

    Question USB stick not recognized

    I recently installed OpenSuse 10.3 64 bit on an HP Pavilion laptop. It does not recogize a USB stick when i plug it in. I don't see it in My Computer (KDE). I've tried searching for opensuse usb stick but hits i get are about installing/running the OS from a usb stick.
    How can I get it to work?

    > mount -l
    /dev/sda1 on / type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr) []
    proc on /proc type proc (rw)
    sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
    debugfs on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw)
    udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw)
    devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0620,gid=5)
    /dev/sda3 on /home type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr) []
    securityfs on /sys/kernel/security type securityfs (rw)

    Did you try "tail /var/log/messages", as root, to see if the OS saw the stick when it was plugged in?

    First check if it's recognised on the USB interface.
    Use /usr/sbin/lsusb, before and after plugging the stick in.

    Well, it looks like you might have a hardare problem.

    Have you tried changing ports? Maybe even change from using on on the front,
    to one on the back (usually different HUB's) ?
