Mount USB flashdisk on QNX 6.2.1?

I just installed QNX 6.2.1.
My question is how to mount the USB flashdisk?


  1. Start io-usb
  2. Start devb-umass
  3. Do a ‘df’ command to see how the name of the raw USB flash drive
  4. Do a mount command based on the raw USB name and whether there is a DOS/QNX Filesystem on the USB drive. Eg

mount -t dos /dev/hd1t77 /fs/dos

would mount a DOS based USB under /fs/dos

Note: I leave it up to you to read up on io-usb and devb-umass to figure out what parameters you need to issue to those drivers.


P.S. All this is automagically done under QNX 6.3 and later. Is there a reason you aren’t using 6.3 or later.

It’s said that QNX 6.3 can only be fully usable only for 30 days, and after that the “pro” features are disabled.
That’s why I’m a bit reluctant to install 6.3.
But maybe I change my mind later.
