Shalom,

Accept that you may not be able to. Your thread is misplaced, in the Linux section.

As an HP-UX admin, here is what I would try.

plug the thing in
ioscan -fnC disk
# see if there is a disk device associated with the thing.
# If a new device is present, it can be mounted with a mount command. HP-UX doesn't ship with a vfs or fat filesystem built in, which leads to the roadblock.

Do you perhaps have a Linux box on your network you can stick the device into?

Hi,

In fact, USB on HP-UX stations is only for keyboard/mouse use.
No drivers included for printers/UMS drive (usb key or disk) ...
