hello all,

i have recently come across an issue with USB after updating from Dapper LTS install onto Hardy LTS, all services appear to work apart from the USB, i can use a USB mouse with the machine, but when i try to plug in my USB mamory stick i get the following error
"mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
similar to the thread below

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=388106
my concern is that although it all worked in Dapper, something has changed in hardy to stop it working.
see the Dmesg output in the thread below

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1100412&highlight=petebarchetta

any ideas, as the Dmesg doesnt show anything out of place,
to get USB working before i have edited the Grub to include noapic and Irqpoll, which solved it, but now its not working with these entries in grub. i can see the devices coming in and out of the usb list, but it is unmountable, the filesystem is Fat32

Put a line like this in /etc/fstab

/dev/hda8 /win/pen vfat rw,uid,umask=0002,iocharset=iso8859-1,utf8 0 0

try a mount -av or/and a system restart.

I think it should mount it.

Hope this helps. Adios.

if i understand you right then the line should read like this for USB as they are SDA?
/dev/sda1 /win/pen vfat rw,uid,umask=0002,iocharset=iso8859-1,utf$

I think they should be SD- in Hardy, too.

So, why does your dmsg output refer to hd- in relation to your drives?

Is fstab correctly constructed?
Did GRUB update ?
Are you really booting a Hardy kernel? The version in your dmesg is 2.6.15

Mine is on 2.6.24

Too many questions and variables if the upgrade has failed/corrupted/ not completed etc.

Might be best to back up any data you want and do a clean install...

EDIT: ! oh and I would suggest you DO NOT try and mount sda1 (that should be your installation drive) as vfat !!
use sdb for USB devices..

what does this command in a terminal tell you??

lsb_release -a

oh, and have a look here

May 22 09:02:04 cassiopeia kernel: [ 2819.466930] FAT: Unrecognized mount option "flush" or missing value

let me know what issues you see, maybe i'm missing the glaring error.....

First error:
mount: mount point /win/pen does not exist

you have not created the mount point for fstab to mount it at boot .
Try creating that folder first and rebooting with the stick in place.

Also

in your log
May 22 09:02:04 cassiopeia kernel: [ 2819.466930] FAT: Unrecognized mount option "flush" or missing value
See
http://www.niftiestsoftware.com/?p=26#more-26
which refers to an older kernel problem..

But...

to get USB working before i have edited the Grub to include noapic and Irqpoll, which solved it, but now its not working with these entries in grub. i can see the devices coming in and out of the usb list, but it is unmountable, the filesystem is Fat32

there is this message in your logs:

[ 23.496720] PCI: IRQ 0 for device 0000:00:02.0 doesn't match PIRQ mask - try pci=usepirqmask
[ 23.496757] PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin A of device 0000:00:02.0. Please try using pci=biosirq.
[ 23.496798] PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:02.0 to 64
[ 23.496835] PCI: IRQ 0 for device 0000:00:02.1 doesn't match PIRQ mask - try pci=usepirqmask
[ 23.496868] PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin B of device 0000:00:02.1. Please try using pci=biosirq.

So it might be worth trying either of those options in GRUB...

(grasping at straws as I cannot find anything definitive yet, sorry...)
Have a read to see if any of this (and the links from it) can point the way forward..
