    DVD 4.0 version can't detect USB thumb drive

    Dear all,

    I have a Dell 700m with the usual specs.

    Everything is working except for my 512mb USB thumb drive which is not detected (can't mount nor access).

    Any suggestions?

    Thanx!

    USB key also not seen on my machine, a Dell 700m, and a Kingston 2 Gb key.
    I am using the 4.0.1 DVD.

    Upon boot the key should light as it gets to "Scanning for USB/Firewire devices", and again later in the bootup.
    This I know becuase the Knoppix 3.9 CD does this and works fine with the key.

    Hi, i've come trough a similar problem :
    Using Knoppix DVD 4.0, everything was working fine, exept i could not use any USB key.

    I found the solution when comparing Knoppix 4.0 DVD with Knoppix 3.9 CD Versions. Using the latter, my USB Mass storage device was automatically detected.
    In fact, you'll need to load "ehci_hcd" module (or ehci-hcd, can't remember...)

    So just type in a root console, after booting :
    Code:
    insmod ehci_hcd
    If the system can't figure out where ehci_hcd module is, try reaching /lib/module/2.6.X/kernel/usb/misc , or somewhere near that. You'll try to get in the directory containing "ehci_hcd.so", and then
    Code:
    insmod ./ehci_hcd.so
    If everything works fine (and you've got the same problem i had), an USB key icon will automatically appear on the desktop... linked to your detected USB device !
