I use Mandrake 10. When I plug the flash disk in to the usb port, the system display a "hardisk" icon, I think it's for the flash disk. But when I double-clicked it(/mnt/removable), nothing appears. How could I configure it?need I configure /etc/fstab? thanks.
I have the same problem with my pen drive and Mandrake 10. The pen drive is recognized, but there is a problem with mounting fat32 (this is the reason of empty window after click on icon "Hard disc" on desktop - look at dmesg command from console). If you try format pen drive with ext3 or ext2 filesystem, probably your device will be working fine.
I think that the problem is with linux kernel 2.6.3...mdk. I have tried with version 2.6.7 and I had no problems with my pen drive.
