I'm trying to attach a Western Digital USB external drive to an old Pentium I machine (DSL is great for this!). It has a USB connection, but when I try to mount there is nothing there. The mount tool does not recognize it, and when I try using /dev/sda1 as the device I get "not a valid block device."
dmesg shows that it is recognized, although there is a message:
|Code Sample |
|<6>scsi: device set offline - not ready or command retry failed after bus reset: host 1 channel 0 id 0 lun 0|
I'll google that error, but if anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate it.
