Curse of the USB memory stick
I am plagued by a stupid problem with my USB stick. I got a 1 gb stick from a friend and it was certainly used in a Windows machine first.
I use it on my Ubuntu 7.10 system and copy file to it and read the files from it without a problem. When I get it on to a Windows machine, I can do the same. I read files from it copied from the Linux machine, and I can read the files copied to it from the Windows machine.
But low and behold when I get back unto the Linux machine and look for the files that the Windows machine put on the stick, there is nothing. On the Windows machine, files are still there.
Can anybody tell me what is going on? I googled, but what I got was that Windows and Linux can be put on the usb stick and I can run either operating system from them. Nothing about my problem.
