Can't mount a USB Flash Drive on BeagleBone

I can’t seem to connect a USB flash drive on my BeagleBone using Angstrom.

Using the dmesg I get:

[ 614.001098] usb 1-1: new high-speed USB device number 3 using musb-hdrc
[ 614.141998] usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=0781, idProduct=5530
[ 614.142059] usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
[ 614.142089] usb 1-1: Product: Cruzer
[ 614.142120] usb 1-1: Manufacturer: SanDisk
[ 614.142150] usb 1-1: SerialNumber: 20054857431E08311BB4
[ 614.147888] scsi1 : usb-storage 1-1:1.0

As you can see it never identifies the drive as a sdX port so I can’t figure out how to mount it (or even if I can mount it).

I have tries three different manufactures and got the same result. All are formatted as FAT32.

Hi there,

looks like another thread is talking about the same issue, take a look!topic/beagleboard/IwzUbg3JY3c

Hope this helps


This seems to be a problem that has crept in to later kernels. I have no problems with 3.2.11 but I get no device with 3.2.16. Can anyone else shed light on this issue?
