    Write file into USB flash disk with intel edison


      Could anyone tell me how to write a file into USB flash disk on Intel Edison?  Or how can i access the USB disk through edison. Because I want to write the program log into the disk instead of into edison. Thanks for any help.

          Hi Mozzie,
          Thanks for reaching out.
          In order to use your USB flash drive in the Edison, first, you need to verify that its file system is in a compatible format like FAT32 and then follow this steps to mount a flash drive on Edison:

          • mkdir /media/flash_drive_directory
          • mount /dev/sda1 /media/flash_drive_directory
          Note: look for the flash drive in the directory /dev or use ls /dev/sd* command, it should appear as sda1 or sdb1.
          Now you should be able to connect a USB flash drive and write your content in /media/flash_drive_directory.
          Hope you find this information useful.
