how to use usb memory stick w/ knoppix
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 23, 2006
I've got a usb memory stick (FAT32 format) but I don't know how to access it. I'm using knoppix installed to the hard drive, and when I insert the stick, nothing seems to happen. I don't see any icons on the desktop for the usb stick or anything like that.
I want to use the stick to transfer files between my Linux laptop and windows xp desktop computer (if I can learn how to use Linux well enough then I'll install it on the desktop).
How do you access the usb stick using Linux? I'm assuming you can use such sticks with both Linux and Windows XP machines.
Need some assistance with Knoppix USB stick issue
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 15, 2013
I ran into a problem with Knoppix 7.0.4 .
I installed Knoppix 7 on my Sandisk Cruser Blade 32GB memory stick, using unetbootin. I made the memory stick bootable and I booted from it with no problem. I also created an encrypted persistent file (.aes). Knoppix sees it on boot, I enter the password, and it works.
Few days ago it stopped working. Knoppix hangs at the boot process, at the stage were it says "entering runlevel 5", and nothing happens. After searching for solutions and trying whatever I could find on the internet, I gave up and reinstalled Knoppix, and only then I realized that the problem is not with the Knoppix installation, but with the persistent file.
So I booted without using the persistent file, and Knoppix booted fine. I then managed to manually mount the persistent .aes file and navigate within its content. I installed many programs in this persistent file and I wanted to copy whatever is left in it, in order to save the work of recr
Usb memory stick not mounting
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 18, 2013
First post for a while- good sign!
Anybody any idea how to enable automount for a usb memory stick? This was working awhile back but on upgrade to Ubuntu Gnome 13.04 and a new rig it stopped working. My external hard drive, keyboard and mouse are all working OK. I've also tried lsusb to see if the system is detecting it which it appears to be doing. Unfortunately I can't post the output as Ubuntu Gnome is playing silly buggers at the moment!
I'm using the 3.9 kernel and have the Gnome3 ppa installed.
Thanks in anticipation

PNY 512M Memory stick error cannot read sector 0
- date: December 13, 2007
If anyone has a PNY 512M memory stick I could do with knowing the CHS geometry.
Heres what sfdisk /dev/sdb thinks about the memory stick:
anc]# sfdisk /dev/sdb
Checking that no-one is using this disk right now ...
Disk /dev/sdb: 489 cylinders, 64 heads, 32 sectors/track
read: Input/output error
sfdisk: read error on /dev/sdb - cannot read sector 0
/dev/sdb: unrecognized partition table type
No partitions found
Input in the following format; absent fields get a default value.
<start> <size> <type [E,S,L,X,hex]> <bootable [-,*]> <c,h,s> <c,h,s>
Usually you only need to specify <start> and <size> (and perhaps <type>).

How to I locate and navigate to my USB memory stick in the terminal
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 10, 2011
I guess this as beginner as you can get. I have put my USB stick into the laptop so I can transfer a few files to it. Can I navigate to it? No. Can I find it? No.
I have googled different ways to express this. Tried many options. Nothing works. I have tried "media" and see only the cdrom. I have checked the fstab without any findings. I have tried "locate usb" only to see hundreds of lines of text passing me by.
I have tried man pages and mount... umount etc.
When I do find linux information, I write it down and learn it so I don't have to ask the same question twice.
Because of some error in BackTrack, (which I believe is close to the normal Ubuntu), I can only use the terminal and not GUI. Which is ok for now, because I need to get familar with it.
So where on my system is the USB to be found?
And if not found, how do I mount it?
Any help would be appreciated.
Booting Linux on an external USB hard drive (not a memory stick, a hard drive)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 12, 2010
Is this possible as of yet?
I see tons of guides on how to get Linux booting on a USB memory stick but not a portable USB hard drive.
Thanks in advance!
Edited to add: Live USB Creator doesn't seem to want to recognize real external USB hard drives; it only wants to recognize flash drives. How would I get it to recognize a real USB hard drive?
How to install Linux Mint (or others if recomended) to run and boot on Memory Stick
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 11, 2009
I have successful installed Mint a couple of ways. I have made a bootable CD so that I can install Mint; I have made a successful memory Stick to Install Mint. What I can not do is to make my installed run independently from the hard drive Master Boot Record. Yes when the memory stick is in I can chose either Mint or Windows. This is not what I want to do. When the memory stick is out I get a grub loading error. I have to do a FixMBR to repair the MBR. Note I did get Puppy Linux to work the way I want but not sure I like Puppy. Mint seems to be easier and more intuitive to a newbie since On Mint I could easily link to network drives and open office files in open office etc.
Note Not very familiar with UNIX. I need to boot on the USB and start-up.
USB memory stick password protected under linux and windows?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 22, 2004
I bought a USB memory stick not too long ago, and have been using it to transfer files around between several XP machines. I would really like to be able to read it in Linux, too.
I am currently using the windows password protection software included with it, which is pretty poor, but it works. It makes the unprotected region visible when I am "logged out" and then the same drive becomes the protected version when I am "logged in". Blech.
What I would really like is something I can use on both linux and windows, where the protected and unprotected regions can be accessed at the same time. Maybe using some sort of file encryption on top of the FAT file system? Like password-protected zip files? (but not actually password-protected zip files. that would be a pain in the butt.) Any suggestions?
