I don't think I have Device Notifier. (I'm on the other OS--XP--on the same machine right now, since LO and OO and Symphony mangled some .doc files I was sent to edit.
WordPerfect had no trouble.) I'll find it, if it's in Synaptic, and load it. The flash drive is probably a few years old, and it's formatted the way it came, which I assume is NTFS,
since my Win7 system could read it. It can't be all that new, since i doubt if you can still buy a thumb drive as small as 4 GIG! Just out of curiosity, what program will tell you
how a drive is formatted? Will fdisk do that? (I know GParted will, but that would be a hassle to load that just to find out.) Since my main use of flash drives is to move files
between Win7 and Linux, I need to keep the old standard format that Windows can read.
Well, maybe I'll dig up GParted, and find out what the format is, before I log back into Linux.
Thanx for the suggestion. I'll try Device Notifier in just a bit, and report back what happens.
