Re: [debian-knoppix] USB Drives

The perennial problem with Knoppix on Windows XP systems is the inability of Linux to reliably read/write to the NTFS file system. The little USB devices called thumb drives or key drives with flash memory are a potiential way to provide some limited R/W disk space to allow Knoppix to operate on an XP system, even for naive users. Does Knoppix automatically recognize these devices? Has anyone used them with Knoppix?

every day ;)

they are recognized as scsi devices, look for /dev/sd* device files
and read them through /mnt/auto/sd*

Must they be formatted in a special way to work with lInux/

no, vfat reads/writes FAT devices
