usb problems

Some machines can be sensitive with their hardware, and the compatibility it has with linux. Ubuntu is good with detection, but not the best.
Some things to try before getting really technical:
try PCLinuxOS, it looks great, and has fantastic hardware support, as well as all the codecs for videos,flash,etc.
post to amilo-forum.com, which is a dedicated forum for the F-S laptops, and has a linux area.

You can try lsusb (as root) to show you the usb devices in your system and it will also tell you if you have a pen drive connected.

Cheers!

It seems that the usb devices are detected.

After you get an usb pendrive, what is the output of lsusb? (You can get more information with lsusb -v).

paste it into a text file and put a link here to that file.
But in the meantime try this a few seconds after plugging the device in:
"tail /var/log/messagess"

Paste that here
