so here is the problem:
my usb thumb drive that had worked on my current install of 10.04 now does not work.
So you are still using 10.04, and you did not do a dist-upgrade, is that correct?
Also, from the info you posted:


~$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 011: ID 054c:0243 Sony Corp. MicroVault Flash Drive

~$ mount
/dev/sdb1 on /media/BAA89E63A89E1DC7 type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096,default_ permissions)

Is that the flash drive? What is mounted on /media/BAA89E63A89E1DC7 ?
What file system is on the flash drive?

yes 10.10 was not installing properly, and 10.04 works pretty good.


~$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 011: ID 054c:0243 Sony Corp. MicroVault Flash Driveyes that is the drive. I want to say it is a NTFS I know that when I first loaded ubuntu it was being read and mounted now I can't seem to find it.

yes that is the drive. I want to say it is a NTFS I know that when I first loaded ubuntu it was being read and mounted now I can't seem to find it.
So, as I asked in my last post, What exactly is mounted on /media/BAA89E63A89E1DC7 ?
(Note: The exact mount point BAA89E63A89E1DC7 may change each time you insert the flash drive to a usb port.

To find out the file system on the flash drive, simply plug in the flash drive, then post the output of:

sudo fdisk -l
This will list all the partitions and their filesystem types that Ubuntu sees.
Flash drives are usually FAT16 or FAT32, unless you have reformatted them to NTFS.
