    Which Distro ?

    from a linux mint post.....

    I was running kernel 3.19.0-32 and when I tried "modprobe usb-storage" I got an error that the module didn't exist. I looked and sure enough /lib/modules/3.19.0-32-generic/kernel/drivers/usb/storage/usb-storage.ko was missing. In fact the whole storage directory was missing. Very odd. So I did a "apt-get install --reinstall" of the kernel packages and afterwards the /lib/modules/3.19.0-32-generic/kernel/drivers/usb/storage/usb-storage.ko file existed. I modprobe'd it and bingo, everything worked.

    So if anybody in the future has a similar issue, try "lsmod | grep usb_storage" and see if the module is there/loaded. If it's not, try to modprobe it, if not, try to find the file, if it's missing your solutions are to try a different kernel version or reinstall your current kernel version.

    What actually is the file type ?? FAT32 ? or NTFS? Boot record intact?

    Looks a bit strange to me.

    For some reason, your Linux distro is detecting the drive as being formatted for swap. You can't (AFAIK) mount a swap formatted drive to a directory. Swap space is handled differently.

    Do you have data on this drive that you wish to recover/copy to the Linux side, or are you just wanting to use the drive on Linux?

    If the latter, install gparted, or start the gnome disks program, and examine the drive. Likely you just need to format it to FAT32 or EXT4 (possibly repartition it), then plug it in and it should mount properly.

    The fact you can mount USB 3.0 drives indicate that this isn't a problem with the USB drivers/stack, just an issue with these drives and probably how they are partitioned/formatted.

    Good Luck Calemus!

    drivers/usb/storage/usb-storage.ko is confirmed present, and functioning

    finding it was an educational excercise
    i have been switching between distros so frequently it's dizzying
    even the most simple excorcize is so different between them
    for instance, the nautalis has no abilities out of the box, in contrast, nemo "does it all"

    Hey Calemus,

    Sorry, have been crazy busy this week. Did you get this sorted? If not, try GParted. Delete the partitions on the USB Device, then create a new one. Format it FAT32 (if you want to use it on both Windows and Linux), or EXT4 (Linux Only) and you should be good to go (Or so I would hope).
