View Full Version : [ubuntu] USB drives?

April 9th, 2009, 03:28 AM
Hi there. I was just wondering if anyone had any info on how to get usb flash drives to work in ubuntu. I have plugged a few different ones in and nothing pops up and there is nothing under Places. Just wondering if there is a driver i have to install?

thanks for any help! :)

They should mostly work out of the box. Could you post the output of

dmesg | tail
just after you plug one in?

it says every port is reset error -110

at the bottom it says Cannot Enable port 3. Maybe USB cable is bad?
unable to enumerate USB device on port 3

i can copy and paste the full msg tommorrow at work where the laptop can connect to the net.

thanks again
