    Default Cannot Mont vfat filesystem

    I am a long time Debian user and have recently started using openSUSE. Now when I attempt to mount an USB flash drive in Dolphin it gives this error message: org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.UnknownFilesystemType: Unknown file system 'vfat'.

    If there is nothing on the device or you can move it off.
    Use My Computer, right click and format
    remember to safely remove (this can be important)

    try again in Linux

    Connect the usb device

    Open a terminal and become su (not sudo)

    type: fdisk -l

    The linux partitions are for Slackware, Debian, and (obviously) openSUSE. The ntfs partitions are for Win 7 so that I can run those programs which don't work with Wine. /dev/sdc is the flash drive.
