I have an 8gb usb flash drive and Ubuntu 12.04 but Ubuntu does not recognise the drive on the desktop and it will not let me transfer files to it, however it does read files that are there (from windows etc) It all works on ubuntu 904 though

Hi I have solved the problem from another post thanks

Please clarify: Does it recognize it, or not? You say you can read from it, so apparently it does recognize it? A step-by-step protocol of what you do to read the drive would be great as well. –  FEichinger Nov 16 '12 at 14:13
