[mythtv-users] Mounting usb drive on ubuntu myth box

Do an dmesg  to find out the name - probably something like /dev/sda

Make a directory where you want to mount it - I generally use /mnt/sda1


mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1

If you have other SCSI devices on your computer, the USB key will be  
the end of the line - i.e. if you have 2 SCSI hard drives, I'd guess  
the hard drives would be sda, sdb, then the USB drive will be sdc.

dmesg should tell you what letters to use, and how many partitions on  
the key.

Cheers - Piers
