http://ubuntuforums.org – My 16Gb Sandisk USB stick is not being detected anywhere on my laptop. When I plug it in, the light comes on for a few seconds, then goes off. It's not listed on disk utility, lsusb, fdisk -l or mount manager. The output of dmesg | tail is: Code: [ 2247.536114] usb 2-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 19 [ 2247.669228] usb 2-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice [ 2247.669485] scsi21 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices [ 2247.669704] usb-storage: device found at 19 [ 2247.669708] usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning [ 2250.580054] us (Hardware)
