Question usb pen error (this isnt a driver thing)

i was mucking about with my new USB 64MB pen trying to get a live-usb verstion to work on it, when i suddenly found out it wont mount in linux (it used to). not in mandrake 9.1, not in MEPIS , not in knoppix 3.4. so i gather this must be somthing in the pen.

i tried reinitelising it, formating it in windows 98. it works fine on windows, but in linux the system dosnt recognize it or simply freezes!!!

i get in dmesg an output where all the card pramiters are shown and a driver is registerd (if im lucky). but it dosnt add /dev/sda1 to the fstab. force-mounting it just makes the system freaze. (pluging it on boot makes knoppix get stuck on the fstab build, when i remove the pen it goes on).
