    Welcome to the forums!!

    I hope you don't mind, but I edited your post to remove the size and bold tags.

    Can you tell us the exact error message and what you have tried.

    As smolly says, you'll have to post the error message.

    The new kernels really handle USB flash drives and external HDD's very well. I haven't had a single issue since upgrading to PCLOS2007 running a 2.6.18 kernel (and recently a 2.6.22 version). Everything just works, including my new 1Tb NTFS external HDD. So, hopefully your issue should be something simple.
