My second question, being greedy here! I have a new Flash drive 16Gb Cruzer with U3 and was initially able to see this when plugged in to my new Acer aspire even though I know the U3 utility isn't supported in Linux I can still use it as a memory stick.
Now for some unknown reason I can't see the drive or files at all! It's fine in all other pc's and laptops.
Anyone know how I can search for it, re-mount it?, find it at all via linus system (it's lit up but not seen) when plugged in. Or why this may have happened? I don't know any linux commands or where to find a 'my computer' equivalent to search for it... help!
I may have done something re installing yum (experiment!)and now can't see Flash drive at all.
