Hi, I just tried to mount the SGS discs on the laptop over the supplied USB cable. I set the SGS to act as a Mass Storage device. The logs show that the discs came up: [ 1429.718638] Initializing USB Mass Storage driver... [ 1429.718771] scsi4 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices [ 1429.718868] usbcore: registered new interface driver usb-storage [ 1429.718871] USB Mass Storage support registered. [ 1429.722071] usb-storage: device found at 9 [ 1429.722075] usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning [ 1434.721329] usb-storage: device scan complete [ 1434.728691] scsi 4:0:0:0: Direct-Access SAMSUNG GT-I9000 Card 0000 PQ: 0 ANSI: 2 [ 1434.736683] scsi 4:0:0:1: Direct-Access SAMSUNG GT-I9000 0000 PQ: 0 ANSI: 2 [ 1434.737322] sd 4:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg2 type 0 [ 1434.740150] sd 4:0:0:1: Attached scsi generic sg3 type 0 [ 1434.747295] sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI removable disk [ 1434.749182] sd 4:0:0:1: [sdc] Attached SCSI removable disk However, the discs are not there: # fdisk /dev/sdc Unable to open /dev/sdc # fdisk /dev/sdb Unable to open /dev/sdb A bit strange. Are the SGS mass storage devices really these, or some thing else that require drivers? Regards.
