RE: Turn on Scsi Support?

Try  modprobe usb-storage 

But the error message suggests your usb drive
has not been set up with a valid file system.

fdisk -l /dev/sda

will probably show what file system has been set up.

If so, you will need partition it and mke2fs to set up a file system.

Subject: Turn on Scsi Support?

Fedora Core  2.4.22-1.2188.nptl i686                        athlon i386

I have a pockey USB drive and it is detected by the
usb filesystem.

hub.c: new USB device 00:11.1-1, assigned address 2
usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x4a9/0x1084) is not claimed by any active

I should be able to mount it as /dev/sda1 but I get the message that sda1 is
not a valid block device. 

According to http://www.linux-usb.org/USB-guide/x498.html
"How to get usb devices working under Linux"

"Since the mass storage driver presents the USB device as a SCSI device, you
need to turn on SCSI support, which is under SCSI support in the
configuration script."

My question then is: Do I have to recompile the kernel in order to turn on
this scsi support? Is there some sort of patch that will do this for me or
is there yet another conf file hidden away somewhere of which I am ignorant.

when I do %modprobe -a, I get:
alias scsi_hostadapter off
alias usb-controller usb-ohci
alias usb-controller1 ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller2 usb-uhci

Any help would be much appreciated.
