I have a Transcend USB drive that is not recognized by the system (Debian Jessie 3.16-amd64). Let me explain: When I connect it to the PC (Gnome) it makes the typical sound of when a drive is connected, but it does not allow me to mount it.
When I write to the console fdisk -l the console returns me the hard drive partitions without recognizing the USB memory.
Device Start End Sectors Size Type /dev/sda1 2048 39063551 39061504 18,6G Linux swap /dev/sda2 39063552 1953523711 1914460160 912,9G Linux filesystem
(Please do not laugh a lot about my partitioned.)
When I write lsblk I see this:
NAME FSTYPE LABEL UUID MOUNTPOINT sda ├─sda1 swap a03dfeb5-91f8-4ed5-9785-175ec9bd293b [SWAP] └─sda2 ext4 fdc3f436-512b-471c-a1bd-6ff9caef4023 / sr0
But what gives me some hope is that when I write lsusb, the prompt give this answer (I only show the memory part):
Bus 001 Device 019: ID 058f:1234 Alcor Micro Corp. Flash Drive
And when I write dmesg the console responds with:
[21187.450951] usb 1-6: new high-speed USB device number 20 using xhci_hcd [21187.581068] usb 1-6: New USB device found, idVendor=058f, idProduct=1234 [21187.581070] usb 1-6: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0 [21187.581072] usb 1-6: Product: Mass Storage Device [21187.581073] usb 1-6: Manufacturer: Alcor Micro [21187.581616] usb-storage 1-6:1.0: USB Mass Storage device detected [21187.581854] scsi18 : usb-storage 1-6:1.0 [21188.580422] scsi 18:0:0:0: Direct-Access Generic USB Flash Disk 7.76 PQ: 0 ANSI: 4 [21188.580638] sd 18:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg7 type 0 [21188.581348] sd 18:0:0:0: [sdg] Attached SCSI removable disk
Can someone help me, give me a link to a similar problem, or give me some idea how to solve this? I am not interested in the data that has inside the memory, I just want it to work again and to be able to use it again.
