    flash drive not detected in lucid

    Hi,
    After an upgrade to Lucid, my 16gb Kingston Data Traveler USB flash drive was not detected.
    I have since installed Lucid from a disc, everything seems to work except still no flash drive detected.
    I tried the drive on a couple of Windows machines.....it was detected.
    The light is on in the flash drive.
    No icon appears on the desktop and no sign of it in PLACES/COMPUTER.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Hi.

    I had the same issue with Ubuntu Lucid upgrade. My flash was not being detected. I googled, found no solution and then reinstalled Lucid (this time fresh install), and my usb drives were detected.

    This is no solution but I never found a better one. Actually Ubuntu Lucid is a lot buggy than the previous releases (using Ubuntu since Hardy). Hope these bugs are fixed in the future updates.

    Regards.

    Well. Means I am luckier Feels good.

    Just a thought, it might be worth testing your PC's usb ports (if already not done). Can't it be a hardware failure?

    SOLVED
    Tried a new flash drive and it works OK.
    Seems it was just coincidence that the old drive went bad around the same time as the 10.04 install.
