It works under Mandrake 8.2
Like many others here, I can't get the Sandisk Cruzer Mini to work under Mandrake 9.2 OR 9.1. It also doesn't work under the latest Gentoo..
The weird thing is, it works like a champ under Mandrake 8.2 , with the stock provided kernel 2.4.18-6mdksecure, which makes me wonder if something's changed in the kernel.
Just thought that might help someone. Fortunately I still have the 8.2 CDs. I'd return the Cruzer but I'd already tossed the packaging.
