Re: [vox-tech] USB mass storage trouble (7-in-one flash reader)



My reader sometimes flakes out, too.  I have to unload all USB Modules
then reload them back.

BTW, have you tried sdb1, sdc1, sdd1, etc?  You got SEVEN places to plug
things in (since it's a 7-in-1 card) and they're usually not all on sda1.
