USB stick - memory problem (mysterious out of space)

none /mnt/removable supermount dev=/dev/sda1,fs=ext2:vfat,--,iocharset=utf8,kudzu 0 0

Hi, I have a mysterious problem with my USB stick. It has 1Gb of space, only half filled. However, when I try to add a little extra file both Nautilus and command line complain that there is no space.
What's up?

Maybe needs to be reformated. Backup whats on it, format it, put the stuff back on.
Worked for me.

Is it possilbe you have a hidden trash bin on your stick? Show the hidden files, and cd into your .trash and remove all the files in there. This happened on my stick.

No, hidden files are out. Formatted 1Gb fat32. Works in Window, but does not in Linux. Too bad.
