I just got a DriveStation to sit next to my Kuro HG (with Debian of course). First I plugged it into my Mac to make sure it works and it does. So I then went through the steps that can be found at http://linkstationwiki.org/Articles/DebianUSBDevices
(under the USB Hard Drive section). I have the drive plugged into the Kuro, went through the motions but I keep getting errors. For instance:
KURO-BOX:/# mount -t vfat /dev/sda /mnt/UsbDrive
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
And when I do a dmesg | tail I get this:
KURO-BOX:/# dmesg | tail
sd 0:0:0:0: Attached scsi disk sda
usb-storage: device scan complete
FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev sda.
Almost sounds like it isn't formated FAT. But when I mounted it on my Mac, it was using PC Exchange so I'm assuming it was FAT.
