Jumpdrive - jetway yes / lexar no


Wow, lots of posts about USB jumpdrives.

Using MDV 2005LE with 2.6.11-6 kernel.
plugin a Jetway 128 USB 2.0 pendrive and MDV 2005LE puts an icon and automounts.
Here's the fstab:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/USB_DISK vfat pamconsole,exec,noauto,noatime,sync,codepage=850,iocharset=iso8859-1,managed 0 0

If I plugin a Lexar 128 USB 2.0 ....nothing no icon no auto no fstab

Pretty sure they are both formatted vfat
Just walked over to my MDK 10.0PC and they are both detected there.

Here's the fstab of the Lexar in MDK 10
none /mnt/removable supermount dev=/dev/scsi/host1/bus0/target0/lun0/part1,fs=ex t2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,kudzu,codepage=850 0 0

Here's the Jetway in MDK 10
none /mnt/removable supermount dev=/dev/scsi/host3/bus0/target0/lun0/part1,fs=ex t2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,kudzu,codepage=850 0 0

Here's fdisk -l with and without Lexar

Disk /dev/hda: 10.2 GB, 10262568960 bytes
240 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1325 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 15120 * 512 = 7741440 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System

/dev/hda7 1094 1147 408208+ 82 Linux swap
/dev/hda8 1148 1325 1345648+ 83 Linux

Here's fdisk -l with Jetway:
[root@localhost /]# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hda: 10.2 GB, 10262568960 bytes
240 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1325 cylinders

Disk /dev/sda: 126 MB, 126615552 bytes
16 heads, 32 sectors/track, 483 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 512 * 512 = 262144 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 482 123376 6 FAT16

Lexar is not even detected

Here is fdisk of the Lexar on my MDK 10 machine:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 240 126448 4 FAT16 <32M
Partition 1 has different physical/logical endings:
phys=(249, 32, 32) logical=(239, 16, 32)

Maybe the different formatting is causing some problem with recognition, but this is something I've never messed with.
dmesg seems to be the same with or without Lexar plugged in.

Any idea what's up?

Also in 2005LE a right click gives umount option, but in 10.0 its just open or properties, and I have just unplugged with no problems. Should I be unmounting in 2005LE?

Thanks
