EDIT: I just plugged in my USB thumbdrive and it has an option to unmount "eject" it under the icon on the taskbar.
It says, "Eject usbstorage"


Where do you get that icon from? I don't see any.

I just noticed in dmesg that my phone IS detected by my zaurus and assigned usb-storage. But it fails as my Z can't figure out the partition table. Here is the error:
CODE
sda: Write Protect is off
sda: I/O error: dev 08:00, sector 0
I/O error: dev 08:00, sector 0
unable to read partition table  


Anyone know why this is happening? This phone mounts fine on my Linux box. When I get home I may try repartitioning it in linux and see if it works then.

Now I'm thinking about finding my camera and see if it has this same problem.

EDIT2: A bit offtopic, I thought a lot of people still used Zip drives/disks.
But with cheap 1, 2, & 4GB SD and CF cards, the Zip drives seem like old dinosaurs.
I have 4 of them, but two of them, (mounted in PC towers) are about ready to give up, (these two are very old).
My "Newer" Zip drives are one external 100MB and another external 750MB
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My zip drive (100MB parallel, during the rebate problem period) got retired shortly after I got my first CD burner (an 8x8x24x for only $150!). 650MB for 50 cents vs. 100MB for $15 media is what killed it. If they IOMega had dropped the prices of Zip disks, I might have kept them for the convience of random read/write. I had to loan someone a Zip disk, if they even had a zip drive, where I could give someone a CDR, which is readable in nearly all PCs and Macs, without worry.

Now, I have a 512MB USB thumbdrive on my keychain, so read/write exchanges with other systems is trivial, and I don't even have to make a special effort to bring it along (where I had to for CDs and Zip disks).


Back to the topic at hand, can't you add the drive to fstab so the automounter knows what to do with it, or is that 2.6 kernels only?

I have 35 Zip disks and 4 of them are 750MB
I've only had one zip disk go bad, and it was almost 12 yrs old
So, I'll continue to use them for most of my data except for the really critical stuff until more disks go bad.
I always backup to CDR/DVD when I fill enough zip disks.
