Still trying to find out what is available to enable the drive in Debian.
Have you tried turning the icon on?
How do you turn it on? If I plug in a memory stick it automatically
recognizes it and an icon appears on the desktop. I have a 10G harddrive
that I removed from an old machine -- I made it into a portable USB
drive -- if I plug it in -- an icon automatically appears. It's only
debian that refuses to show the icon on the desktop. My 2nd machine that
I use as a test machine had debian installed -- no icon. Run Ubuntu Live
-- icon appears -- install Ubuntu Live -- icon appears. Install Linux
mint 9 -- icon appears -- install Fedora 13 -- icon appears. In every
case where the icon appears I can format it, partition it,
read/write/move things -- I do have some other distros that I will try
to see what happens but I suspect the icon will appear and the USB drive
will appear as expected.
Thanks for your reply.
