When I plug in my flash drive, Mandriva pops open a windows asking what I want to do. Which version are you using? I am on 2007.

I've got 2007 also, 64bit, same as lxthusdan, a scan and ask deal just like Win XP shows up. I also have a "Devices" icon on the desktop where I can access it again or remove it if I close the browser window. KDE

One thing one has to ask him/herself is: Is it possible to get all the features of the DVD version on one CD?

Have you tried a different USB socket? I had once found out
that my front socket would not register but the rear sockets would..I called the Mfgr. and there tech guy said some front sockets do not supply enough current but the rear one's do..
Go figure

I'm having problems wihnt my usb two. but I did it by changing stuff. Find one of the printer usb help/tutorials, they can be a big help in bringing to the foreground usb sticks. It is usually an option that can be disabled in configure/installs. See if you can find /proc/scsi or /proc/bus. if they are there it might be a mount problem... sorry i can't help more than that..
