Default "hotplugging" usb devices no longer working

I have a sansa MP3 player and a Flip Video. Each plugs in as a usb
device and presents as a fat file system.

Both used to work, but don't today (it is has been a while--few
months--since I last plugged them in.

Now the device screen shows that it is connected, but I see nothing on
the computer
df shows no new file system
mount shows no new file system

I checked and FAT/VFAT are in the kernel

# DOS/FAT/NT Filesystems
CONFIG_FAT_FS=y
CONFIG_VFAT_FS=y
CONFIG_FAT_DEFAULT_CODEPAGE=437
CONFIG_FAT_DEFAULT_IOCHARSET="iso8859-1"

Both hal and udev are running
8045 ? Ssl 0:00 /usr/sbin/hald --use-syslog --verbose=no
8046 ? S 0:00 hald-runner
8075 ? S 0:00 hald-addon-input: Listening on /dev/input/event8 /dev/input/event7 /dev/input/event2 /dev/input/event1 /dev/input/event4 /dev/input/event3 /dev/input/event0 /dev/input/event5
8084 ? S 0:00 /usr/libexec/hald-addon-generic-backlight
8086 ? S 0:00 /usr/libexec/hald-addon-cpufreq
8087 ? S 0:00 /usr/libexec/hald-addon-acpi
8095 ? S 0:00 hald-addon-storage: polling /dev/sr0 (every 2 sec)
8785 ? Ss 0:00 /bin/bash -c ps ax | grep hal
8787 ? S 0:00 grep hal

8131 ? S<s 0:00 /sbin/udevd --daemon
8794 ? Ss 0:00 /bin/bash -c ps ax | grep udev
8796 ? S 0:00 grep udev

Any help would be appreciated

thanks,
allan

What "device screen" do you mean? And where are you looking "on the
computer"? When I insert a usb stick, there's a lot of output in
/var/log/messages about the stick and the partition on it. Then I use
"mount /media/usbstick" to mount it according to the appropriate entry
in my /etc/fstab. Speaking of which, what's your /etc/fstab look like?
If you use "tail -f /var/log/messages" and then plug the device in, does
it see that it's connected?

I suspect you're talking about auto mounting, such as KDE or Gnome does;
can you manually mount them? If not, then I doubt auto mounting will
either.

This is a test. Please ignore (see prev msg for explanation).

Had this problem too. Not sure if this suits your case. Have you tried
using UUID in place of /dev/sdx? Use blkid to get the UUID for the
device and replace /dev/sdx in fstab.
