Default Problem mounting FATX Usb Flash Drive
I'm trying to mount my 256mb Lexar Jumpdrive Secure, however I receive this message
Quote:
mount: Insufficient permissions, unknown filesystem, or media not inserted.
I am logged on as root, though. Is there any way to mount this type of filesystem?

FATX is an XBox modifed FAT isn't it?

Mines only a Lexar Sport, marked as "FAT" in windows but it mounts with the following in PC-BSD: mount /dev/da0s1 /mnt/da0s1 where da0s1 is my USB port of choice. Have you tried it from the window that pops up from KDE?

It's also useful to creat a symbolic link to the mount point. (ln -s /mnt/da0s1 /Lexar in my case) That way if you always use the same port, you can mount it and then use the symlink like an alias for getting to the file path & umount'ing it. (gkrellm also has a quick unmounter for drives).

Kwikdisk didn't work. When I click to mount da0, nothing happens. And when I tried mounting it from the konsole
Code:
%mount /dev/da0 /mnt/da0
mount: /dev/da0 on /mnt/da0: incorrect super block
I encountered that.

Also, I can recognize the drive on Windows Device Manager but not on the Windows Explorer.
