I have a laptop and a desktop both running fedora core 4. When I plug my CRUCIAL thumb drive into the usb port the os auto recognizes it at /media/CRUCIAL/.
So I plug the thumb drive into my laptop, copy a file to /media/CRUCIAL/ and then pull the thumbdrive out of my laptop and put it in my desktop. The desktop auto recognizes the drive and "mounts" it to the same /media/CRUCIAL/ location. But the file that I "supposedly" copied to the thumb drive while plugged in to my laptop is no longer on the drive. So I check my laptop and it appears as though the thumb drive is still plugged in and being recognized in /media/CRUCIAL/.
As far as can tell I can not manually mount or unmount the drive to the /mnt/ directory without editing /etc/fstab. I don't want to do that because I imagine that the whole purpose behind auto recognizing the thumbdrive is so I don't have to manually mount or unmount it anyway.
So my question is, how do I put a file on my thumb drive when the os auto "mount"s it to the /media/... directory? Is this a problem with "flushing" the information to the actual device?
Any and all help will be apreciated. Thanks a bunch.
PS. I guess I wouldn't have to deal with this if I could find support for my WMP54GX Linksys Wireless-G adapter so I could get a wireless internet connection. Anybody have any help with this issue?
