Hi all,

I have bought new external usb disk, which is not partitioned yet. I tried to do so with fdisk but this is the result

Code:
fdisk /dev/sda

Unable to read /dev/sda


Dmesg looks like:

Code:
usb-storage: device scan complete
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Attached SCSI disk
sd 0:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg0 type 0


Does anyone know, what to do, google did not help.

Thx

If this is all output in dmesg, it seems that you did not enable USB mass storage support or SCSI disk support in your kernel.

both are enabled, the usb-storage as a module and i modprobed it, but still it does not work, still the same problem. I post whole dmesg if you could see more than me there.

Hi, looking at your dmesg output you need to recomplie your kernel with the

< > ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support --->

disabled, otherwise you CDROM/DVD drives will not run in DMA mode!

Just a thought! are you pluging the external usb drive into the front of your PC or are you using one of the ports at the rear? I have problems with USB devices plugged into the front USB ports, i think its down to electical noise on the extender cables.

I'm no expert by far, but this has happened to me when I format an external drive on my mac with a GUID partition scheme and then plug the drive into a linux box that doesn't have GUID support in the kernel. It seems to me there must be some kernel option that you need but don't have.

Hi, why don't you download a liveCD like puppy or knoppix which will autodetect your hardware and confirm if you have
a hardware issue or a gentoo config problem!
