    USB devices

    These devices are xwindows independent. Either Gnome or KDE should be able to read / write.

    Not knowing what specific problems you are having it is hard to provide suggestions or help. What distro are you running? These devices use SCSI emulation and have a device of sdx1. Also normally they are already formated as FAT devices. You need to load the usb modules.

    There are lots of previous post on the subject that might provide additional information.
