Question about Kingston (SDCZ2-512-A10-KT) (SDCZ2512A10KT) .512 GB Hard Drive
My flash drive was automatically write protected.
I get a message that the stick is write protected. there is no write protection on the particular device! how do i overcome this?

I'm currently at my daughter's place in Melbourne (actually I'm back in Perth, but I wrote this post while still in Melbourne). She has a '3' 3G USB modem, but I was unable to get it to work with Puppy. Perhaps I need the APN, which I can't find documented anywhere.
So, I am using her computer to access the Internet. I downloaded a couple of files and saved them on her Kingston Datatraveler 4GB Flash drive, but got a surprise when I plugged it into my laptop --- Linux does not recognise it, not at all. There is no kernel uevent generated when it is plugged in. Same situation with alpha9 and 4.1.2. I plug it into my daughter's laptop, Windows recognises it.
Hmmm. I still have XP installed on my laptop, will try that... no, it still isn't recognised. That sure is weird. I have a 2GB Datatraveler at home, that works fine.
I have brought a 2GB Lexar Flash drive with me to Melbourne, but it has a ext2 partition. So, I reduced the size of the partition and created a fat32 second partition.
Booted XP, but Windows has dissappointed me (again), the fat32 partition is unusable. XP sees a "G:" drive, however assigns that to the ext2 partition and will not assign any letter to the second. I dug deeper and found that it does see the two volumes but I could not make it use the second fat32 partition.
So, can't transfer any files from her laptop. Oh well, I'll email them to myself. These blog posts that I am typing on my laptop will not get actually posted until after I get home.

On a separate issue
Barry, I always thought pupsave backup was rather tedious; as a result it rarely got done. I have cooked up a small mod to the shutdown script that generates a backup copy (and keeps a few older copies) of the pupsave after it has been unmounted. Since it happens at shutdown it takes no more user time. I no longer have to boot pfix=ram to back up my pupsave! If you are interested in this for Puppy 5 let me know.

Kingston Datatraveler 4GB Flash drive.
Just out of interest Barry did you try
GParted....see if it could see those drives...
select Boot and LBA flags
and then see if Windows sees it and also Puppy.
I have had the occasional boot where I
generally pick Xvesa but the computers
I have tested prefer Xorg - and I get
the no drive dramas.
Probably superflious to you but in the
midst of oddities these things can crop
up and the basics are forgotten.
Also some USB ports can act up.
I have a cheapie Asus MB on one computer
and only the rear ones consistently work.
Some Compaq laptops were well known for
poor USB performance.
I've seen the same issue with USB dongles
from 3 Mobile, needed to use 2 ports at
once as not enough power to the USB dongle.
And as is the way I can't find a referance for you today..re this issue. Sorry.
Enjoy your hols Big Fella.

Do you mean you tried to use it and it said its write protected. There should be a lock located right on it. Is it in the unlock position?
