Description of problem:
SanDisk Cruzer Mini USB Flash Drive not recognised. I had to manually
add the "vendor id" as reported by dmesg to the updfstab.conf.default
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug a SanDisk Cruzer Mini USB Flash Drive into a USB port.
The device is not mounted. There's no mount point added to /etc/fstab
The device is mounted. A mount point is automagically added to /etc/fstab
Adding the line
match hd SanDisk
to the "device flash" section of updfstab.conf.default solves the problem.
Output of dmesg when the device is plugged:
usb 1-2: new high speed USB device using address 2
SCSI subsystem initialized
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...

Vendor: SanDisk Model: Cruzer Mini Rev: 0.1

diff -rup against my (modified) updfstab.conf.default
I have the same flash drive, here's the relevant output from kudzu -s
-p -c HD in case it helps:
desc: "SanDisk Corporation Cruzer Mini"
usbmfr: SanDisk Corporation
usbprod: Cruzer Mini
desc: "Sandisk Cruzer Mini"
I put match hd "Sandisk Cruzer Mini" in the flash section of my
updfstab.conf.default and it works.
Added, will be in later hwdata builds.
