Tried that - didn't work.
>By the way, when WRITING to a USB stick in Windows, you also have to click 'Safely Remove Hardware' before removing the USB drive, else you lose the changes you made - underneath, both Windows and Linux do the same thing - but Windows does not use the word 'unmount'.
At least in XP it's not necessary to do that, though it might be recommended. I know because I've used XP extensively in the past. At leaset I've never lost any data by doing that...
