    Connect your device. As root, do fdisk -l.
    If it's detected, you'll see it listed there.
    Your output should look similar to this:
    Code:
    root@jason:~# fdisk -l

    Check that the device is being recognised first.

    Run this in a terminal
    Code:
    tail -f /var/log/messages
    Then plug it in and look for any errors...

    It's mounted now, but read only. Just on google trying to figure out what to do, in-between doing housework

    OK sick of fiddling about with the flash drive so just typed it out.

    My flash drive is formatted with fat so don't see why it is only read only.

    It's like every time I boot my machine another problem presents itself, but at least I got the flash drive working as root.
