I'll take this as a compliment for checkbox :)

Thanks for running the tests!

I'm curious about the test where it failed to detect when you inserted the usb
storage device. Could you tell me which one it was?

I know there's one of the tests where, if you plug in the device and
*immediately* press Test, it fails, because the drive still hasn't settled/isn't
mounted. You can press "test again" and see if it works this time, or, better
yet, let me know which test it was so we can fix it :)

Thanks for taking the time to report this back to me, I really appreciate it.
