Fedora Core 2?

 

Could you post what commands/method that you are using to access the drive and if it is listed in your /etc/fstab file.

This is good news! I had heard that core 2 did not have a supermount option built in. I'll have to try it and see. DapperDan, did you use the upgrade route to core 2 or fresh install?

 

Any problem with the issue with reading or changing your windows partition?

Yes, I was correct. Without any programing on my part, Fedora 2 found and mounted my USB stick that I just happened to have plugged in when I did the install! smile

Huh? When i plugged in my usb drive, a folder appeared in my /mnt directory which was named flash. But when i clicked it, there was nothing inside.

Using gedit as root, check your /etc/fstab and tell me if you have a line that looks like this toward the bottom...

 

 

Code:
/dev/sda1               /mnt/flash              auto    noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0 

 

It may be just a matter of mounting it. As root go:

 

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/flash [enter]

 

Then:

 

mount /mnt/flash [enter]

 

Also try leaving your USB device plugged in before booting/rebooting. My guess is that it will be mounted at startup and you'll then have access to it without having to mount it yourself.

Is this like one of those picture imaging programs? If so, I just don't know if there is an equivalant Linux program that gives any support for it.

Are your pictures on a USB storage device or are you trying to download them to your box directly from a camera via a USB cable? If camera via USB cable, I wouldn't know how to do that. If taking out a USB storage device and plugging it into your computer, we can probably make that happen. What distro are you using?
