[K12OSN] USB mount error - not a valid block device



Hello everyone,

I'm having problems accessing my usb pen on my server/local machine. I have looked on google for advice and followed the instructions on http://www.k12ltsp.org/phpwiki/index.php/Technical:Storage:USB

here's what happens:

[debbie localhost debbie]$ su
Password:
[root localhost debbie]# cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Attached devices:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
  Vendor: USB 2.0  Model: Flash Disk       Rev: PROL
  Type:   Direct-Access                    ANSI SCSI revision: 02
[root localhost debbie]# cat /proc/scsi/usb-storage/0
   Host scsi0: usb-storage
       Vendor: USB 2.0 Flash Disk
      Product: USB Mass Storage Device
Serial Number: None
     Protocol: 8070i
    Transport: Bulk
       Quirks:
[root localhost debbie]# mkdir /tmp/flash
mkdir: cannot create directory `/tmp/flash': File exists
[root localhost debbie]# mount /dev/sda1 /tmp/flash
mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device

Everyone uses these usb pens nowadays so it must be fairly simple to configure (unless your name is Debbie!).
Any ideas or pointers?


Thanks.

Debbie
