I was just wandering how you might go about accessing files on a removable usb device in BLAG. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

For 30k it should just automajickally mount itself on the desktop.

For earlier versions, you can find out where the device is by running `dmesg` after plugging it in. If it doesn't come up, you can try this series of commands:

Code:
modprobe ehci_hcd
modprobe uhci_hcd
modprobe usb-storage
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt



Again, for 30k, it just magically appears....

You can add following line to fstab :
/dev/sda1 mnt/nameofdirectory vfat user,noauto,exec,showexec,codepage=850,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0
(is an example...)

It also works for digital camera. You just have usbstorage module compiled in kernel (normally default on 2.4)
