Ubuntu netbook can't see my nook

Ubuntu_cant_see_nookI had a problem yesterday getting my Ubuntu netbook (which is a Dell Inspiron 910 mini) to see my Nook.

After, mucking about with various unix commands, including:

mount
lsusb
dmesg | egrep -i connected
ls /dev/sd*

It turns out that Ubuntu couldn’t see the Nook, because the power was too low.

It *seems* that there was enough power to power the Nook on, but not enough for it to make itself visible to the netbook.

For future reference, the Nook shows in the above commands as follows:

mount

/dev/sdc on /media/matt/6663-3466 type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,uid=1000,gid=1000,shortname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1,showexec,flush,uhelper=udisks2)
/dev/sdb on /media/matt/NOOK type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,uid=1000,gid=1000,shortname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1,showexec,flush,uhelper=udisks2)


lsusb

lsusb
Bus 001 Device 014: ID 2080:0003 Barnes & Noble NOOK Simple Touch

dmesg | egrep -i connected

nothing

ls /dev/sd*
