Description of problem:
The Sandisc Cruzer Mini USB memory should be recognized by updfstab

adding the entry 

device diskonkey {
    partition 1
    match   hd "Sandisk Cruzer Mini"

to /etc/updfstab.conf.default would remedy the problem

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert the USB memory
2. note that it does noty show up in /etc/fstab

Additional info:

Comment 1 Michael J. Carter 2004-07-10 14:52:10 UTC
On Fedora Core 2, this device is just "Cruzer Mini":

[carter@localhost carter]$ cat /sys/bus/usb/devices/1-2/product
Cruzer Mini

Also, what's the difference between 'device flash' and 'device
diskonkey' ???  The LEXAR device listed under 'device diskonkey'
doesn't appear to be different than some of the devices listed under
'device flash'.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-07-12 20:47:57 UTC
Historical reasons, almost certainly. (added at different times.)

Comment 3 Suzanne Hillman 2004-07-13 21:03:27 UTC
Internal RFE bug #127786 entered.

Comment 5 David Juran 2004-09-03 13:13:03 UTC
And here's another one.
The Cruzer mini model SDCZ2-512 will be matched by the line 

 match   hd "Generic STORAGE DEVICE"
 in /etc/updfstab.conf

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2004-09-03 14:52:11 UTC
Unfortunately, 'Generic Storage Device' isn't really a specific enough
string; that could lead to lots of false matches with other devices.

Comment 7 David Juran 2004-09-03 20:08:50 UTC
Plugging the device in, I get the following text in /var/log/messages:

Is there any other way of identifying the device?

Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2004-09-03 21:55:07 UTC
Not really as of now.

Comment 9 David Anderson 2004-10-18 08:32:42 UTC
My Mac-using friend has a 256Mb Sandisk Cruzer Mini... he wasn't too 
impressed that I had to open a terminal and add an entry 
to /etc/updfstab.conf.default in order to get it automatically 
The entry I used was to add this to "device flash": 
   match   hd "Cruzer Mini" 
Any chance this will be fixed in FC3? It's a trivial fix. 

Comment 10 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-18 16:00:40 UTC
FC3 doesn't use updfstab, so, no.

Comment 11 David Anderson 2004-10-20 09:56:34 UTC
Oh, OK. Sorry for my ignorance! 
Also, when I insert it a second time, it doesn't get recognized (this 
is with the entry in /etc/updfstab.conf.default), but I guess if the 
mechanism's changed in FC3 then this isn't useful information any 

Comment 12 Bill Nottingham 2005-02-07 23:34:36 UTC
Cruzer Mini is in kudzu- and later, which should be in U5.

Comment 13 David Juran 2005-02-10 09:43:04 UTC
Actually it's matched by 'SanDisk' in kudzu-
 which is availbale in U4 (-:
