Re: [SLUG] [Fwd: USB memory stick]


Have you tried running fsck on the filesystems on you USB drive?

On my lapstop when I insert a USB memory stick the memory stick is
unable to be recognised. Previously this worked and both memory sticks
work on my desktop. Both Ubuntu 5.10 updated in last week.
Memory stick is vfat.
What do I need to edit to fix?
thanks
Ken
