USB pendrive ghostwritable?

hi (®)

I'm having some trouble writing on a USB pendrive... it seems to be perfectely recognized (I can see and run every files inside), and if I try to write some file it is correctly shown into Nautilus.

the problem comes when I put the pendrive in some other PC, with Windows... the files which where there already, are there. The file I added under Fedora, isn't there

how come?

Sounds like it wasn't unmounted ("ejected") properly. The data you wrote was still in the buffers in RAM and never got written because you just yanked the drive from the USB port. Right click on the USB drive's icon and click Unmount Volume. You can then safely remove the device.

And if you happen to be working strictly from command line, use the sync command to force the buffers to be written to the device.
