Vtec V-Drive USB 2.0 Flash Pen not working in Ubuntu 5.10


Hi, I have a Vtec V-Drive USB 2.0 Flash Pen (it's a normal ink pen with a USB flash disk hidden in it) and I'm unable to use it with Ubuntu 5.10.

It works with no problems with Knoppix and I've managed to get it to work with Ubuntu but only once.

When I plug the drive in with Ubuntu dmesg gives the following
Code:
4294781.550000] usb 5-6: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4[4294781.787000] Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...

If I try mounting with
Code:
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/flashpen
the terminal just hangs and does nothing.

When I do the same with Knoppix, dmesg gives
Code:
scsi2 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices

I am able to get other flash memory devices to work and automount in Ubuntu with no problems.

TIA
