2. upon checking the usage (df -hT) its not read --

Code:

df -hT

/dev/hdc12
reiserfs 14G 6.1G 8.0G 43% /
none tmpfs 506M 0 506M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda1 vfat 19G 14G 5.1G 74% /mnt/windows
/dev/hda5 vfat 20G 12G 7.9G 60% /mnt/winbak


3. BUT when i insert my USB flash disk : it is read

Code:

df -hT
Filesystem Type Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hdc12
reiserfs 14G 6.1G 8.0G 43% /
none tmpfs 506M 0 506M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda1 vfat 19G 14G 5.1G 74% /mnt/windows
