i can plug my psp into the computer but it wont recognize it. on a windows computer it shows up as a removable disk. is there a way i can get it to see that its there? im running fedora 8. can anyone help? thanks allot.
Go to .... System->Preferences->Hardware->Removable Drives and Media
and mak sure that on the "storage" tab that "mount removabl drives when ...." are both checked.
If not, then run "dmesg" right after you plug i nthe USB and you should see something like:
usb 1-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
usb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
scsi6 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
usb-storage: device found at 5
usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
usbcore: registered new interface driver usb-storage
USB Mass Storage support registered.
usb-storage: device scan complete
scsi 6:0:0:0: Direct-Access .......................
sd 6:0:0:0: [sde] 16251904 512-byte hardware sectors (8321 MB)
sd 6:0:0:0: [sde] Write Protect is off
sd 6:0:0:0: [sde] Mode Sense: 43 00 00 00
... and another ~10 lines of stuff ...
right at the end of dmesg output.
he [sde] is the dvice name. Try "fdisk -l /dev/sde" to see the partition & file system typed.
Also search google/com/linux for a lot of PSP Linux detail.
