[ubuntu-uk] Dapper - Can't write to removable disks

I'm having some trouble writing to removable USB disks. Although drag and drop 
seems to work ie I can see and open the moved/copied file/directory, when I 
try to open it in SUSE 10.1 it's not there, occasionally it will succeed in 
copying to the disk but very rarely. The same happens with a USB HDD, I even 
get the copy progress meter, but again nothing there. Everything works fine 
in the opposite direction ie SUSE ---> Dapper

I've tried other non linux OSs and it works OK, but not under Dapper even 
after a VFAT reformat. Is a permission issue?

Any help would be well appreciated, it's getting to the point that I'm 
beginning to think Windows thoughts about Dapper!
