Problem with USB Stick detection



  • Hi,
    I've tried to mount my usb stick following the standard onion tutorial.
    When i plug a stick (i've tried 5 different sticks), i never find the sda1 in the dev folder !

    2 problems:

    • when i plug the power wire on the micro usb plug and connect with ssh wifi access (putty) : when i plug a stick, the wifi put off automatically !!
    • when i plug direct to the computer to access with com3 protocol, when i plug a stick, i don't see a /dev/sda1.

    I have tested all connection on my expansion, USB+, USB-, Ground, +5V pins, all are ok.

    I have reset my omega and reinstall all, nothing.

    With an usb stick, my omega reboot automatically but find nothing...

    In this point, i need any help please :-(

    Thank you very much,

    Best regards



  • If you are not seeing /dev/sda1 what other partitions or devices are appearing if any....look for something like sdb, sda5 or similar partitions or devices under /dev.



  • Unhappily, nothing new :-(



  • While watching the cli via serial connection plug in the usb device and see if it detects it something like this:
    (This what I see when I plug in my USB stick)

  • Nothing happens, USB plug seems to be dead :-( but i'm afraid that Omega is the problem because I have tested all pins connections on the expansion dock...
    Is there an opkg package to install or force to reinstall to detect USB device ?



  • BTW what type format did you toss on the USB stick having said I believe and ask others even if it is not ext4 the screen should show some dialog when you plug in the USB stick as mentioned above. And the device or the partition should show up in the /dev/directory.

    1. If you have tried tried each of the following and still no USB stick it's time for the admins.

    firstboot wipes out all of the changes to the filesystem since the last firmware flash.
    (starting over)

    oupgrade -f force an install of the most recent stable firmware.
    each command shown above is like starting over.

    These are things I have tried when I run into a brick-wall.



  • I have force the most recent stable firmware installation.

    Each time i plug the USB stick, it displays :

    root@Omega-2561:/dev# [  206.510000] wlan0: authenticate with 24:ec:99:02:98:d7
    [  206.530000] wlan0: send auth to 24:ec:99:02:98:d7 (try 1/3)
    [  206.540000] wlan0: authenticated

    [  206.560000] wlan0: associated
    

    It seems that it modifies the wlan port !!

    Try ls ls /dev/



  • When i try ls /dev/ before having pluged the usb stick:

    root@Omega-2561:/# ls /dev/

    When i plug the usb stick:

    and then ls /dev/

    mtd0ro              mtdblock0           ptmx                zero
    

    There is no change as i already explained before :-(



  • I suggesting you in order to get a good tracking for your system, to use dmesg command from ssh console or serial console.
    The idea is to start your system without your "under the examination" USB stick, then give dmesg to see all system logging. After give dmesg -c to clear all system logging, then connect your USB stick, wait as minute and then dmesg again. Post here the possible output of this last dmesg...

    P.S. if you need to check the many screens dmesg screens please use: dmesg | more
    using this you will get screen pause on each full screen printing, press space bar for the next screen or Q to quit



  • I had one memory stick refuse to work (the light on the memory stick came on but nothing happened on the Omega) on my Omega. It was an old and bad memory stick so I place the blame on that.
    Using a Kingston branded memory stick worked.



  • Thank you for your help.

    USB Stick 'Lacie': it reboots the system and after booting, no device found in /dev/ !

    Here is the dmesg result:
    omega.txt



  • Sorry to see that all three dmesg are not detected any USB storage device (USB Stick).
    I am not expert but I suspect something wrong with the omega usb connector or the associated hardware function. I can not help further need special tests I suppose.... Sorry



  • Just take one who works, to save you a headache.
    I guess we can't expect that everything works out of the box.



  • You must have a bad board have them replace it.



  • @Damien I checked your omega.txt.
    Your Omega already detected something on boot-time.

    Did you connected USB-hub before boot?



  • @Hiro-AsO No, i never connected an USB-hub before boot.
    this dmesg is when i connected a lacie usb stick and reboot automatically.
    Here is a standard dsmeg boot, no device in usb port : omega-boot.txt
    Do you think there is an issue about this problem ?



  • @Damien

    I am not expert, but this line in your dmesg file shows something really strange, your omega trying to evaluate an usb device and failed! What is connected to your usb port? I suspect board failure, see the line bellow that is from your dmesg...

    [ 9.340000] usb usb1-port1: unable to enumerate USB device

    I think the best bet is to get official advice from administrators here...

    Sorry I can't help more...



  • @Mike-Kranidis Thank you very much for your help, i appreciate it very much :-) I think too that my board is failed because there is no usb device connected on the port...


  • administrators

    Hi @Damien can you please post a photo of your setup? Just a regular photo of your Omega & Dock and then a photo with the USB stick plugged in.
