    memorex USB drive problem

    I have a 512MB Memorex USB drive that will not work on my Linux 9. Linux won't see it to be able to mount it.
    It does work on my windows. Also my 128MB memorex USB drive does work on this same Linux box.
    Here are some command outputs with the USB drive plugged in:

    Did you come from the future? The latest stable Linux release is

    Are you getting "Linux" confused with "RedHat?" If you are RedHat 9 is old; get Fedora Core 3 or Fedora Core 4 Test 3.

    What happens when you (try to) mount it? What happens when you look at the mountpoint after it mounts?

    sorry, referred to Linux but it is in fact Redhat

    Sorry about that. I did mean Redhat and yes it is 9
    I am using Redhat for some building tools for software and need to contiue using it.
    So therefore I cannot get a newer version at this time. I am unsure it the tools are supported on other platforms.
    That is part of my dilemna, old Redhat because of tools, but new USB drive.
