What do you mean by "usb device" ? Do you mean usbdevfs in /proc/bus/usb ? Or do you mean an usb key (flash disk) ?

PS: if you don't get many replies I guess this is because the forum is somehow more popular with 3D hardware than any other hardware-related issues

Hi,

wrong forum.

your usb-stick was recongniced a) as an scsi-like disk, than you'll find it as /dev/sda1 or so. or b) as an usb-block device. Then the part is found in /dev/ub/

Have a look into dmesg

Hi,

I would say, that this one, is the better/correct choice:
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=27

because this forum is about:
NVIDIA Linux Forum (51 Viewing)
Discussion related to Linux in conjunction with NVIDIA based graphics cards. This forum is linked from NVIDIA's Linux drivers page.
