Subject: Re: usb-storage not recognizing archos 20g fm recorder in linux
From: John covici (covici_at_ccs.covici.com)

Well, I think I finally found the problem -- I enabled usb support
and the mass storage on the machine where it already worked under
windows and it worked right off and there is lots of stuff in the
devices file under the /proc/bus/usb (which I did have to put in the
fstab manually), so this would seem to indicate a hardware problem on
the other box since that devices file is empty.
