    Default Device notifier fails with USB stick

    OpenSuse 11.4 32bit KDE 4.6.0

    When I plug in my 8 GB SanDisk Cruzer USB stick into my desktop box, the KDE Device Notifier fails to recognize it. It will recognize every other USB stick. "fsck" reports no errors. I can mount it manually. I can read and write to it. The Device Notifier on my netbook recognizes it. So does another desktop box. Any ideas? By the way this started recently so I suspect some software update.

    Thanks.

    how many different places are there to plug in a device on that desktop?
    try them all (one at a time)...

    the troublesome stick _may_ work ok on all the other receptacles (some
    desktops have UBS attachment points the back..)

    if you have one bad attachment point for that stick, you _might_ find
    that everything else will work ok in that plug in spot..

    *OR*, maybe not.

    It's that Sandisk U3 garbage again. Re-installed after I stuck it into a WinDoze box. Running "u3-tool -R /dev/sdX" solved the problem. I will never buy a Sandisk product again.
