I have a Cruzer disk on key which was recognized automatically by my RedHat6-beta OS.

I removed it always using the GUI option "Safely remove", but one time by mistake I selected "Eject" and from then it is not recognized.

I tried to mount it according to some Google's results, including editing the fstab file - no success.

Does someone have an idea how to solve that?

Thank you all in advance.

how about unplugging and replugging? – phunehehe Nov 11 '10 at 0:40
@phunehehe - of course I tried it... Didn't help. – rursw1 Nov 23 '10 at 14:07

Got it after all.

First - run dmesg command -- a new SCSI device is recognized (usually sdb1). Then mount /dev/sdb1 <mount point>.

Hope that it will help someone.
