usb_storage is loaded, but even with the USB drive listed in /boot/grub/device.map (as (hd2)):

(hd2)   /dev/disk/by-id/usb-Verbatim_STORE_N_GO_078A18B40293-0:0

and the drive has a boot record on it:

dd if=/usr/lib/syslinux/mbr.bin of=/dev/sda

update-grub does not detect anything of interest on hd2.

If you want to have update-grub look for other operating systems then in
your /boot partition you need to install os-prober.
Though I can't help if it still doestn't detect anything there.

$ locate os-prober

I think os-prober gets called alright, it just doesn't seem to look at the USB drive.

If you can think of anything else for me to check, I am happy to try what you suggest.

Thanks again for your help,
