10.4: A fix for non-mounting USB drives in 10.4.10
Authored by: JadeNB on Jul 01, '07 01:12:18PM
MacFixIt suggests deleting the kernel extensions cache. I tried it, and it has fixed the problem for me permanently. (This problem only occurred on one of the computers I use, though; the other experienced no trouble with USB drives, even after the update.) I find it delightful that this was all caused by an update specifically designed to increase the reliability of USB drives!

Oops, sorry, that MacFixIt article is behind the subscriber wall. All I had to do was to delete the following:
  • com.apple.kernelcaches (a folder in /System/Library/Caches)
  • Extensions.kextcache (a file in /System/Library)
  • Extensions.mkext (a file in /System/Library/)
and then restart.
