I also have noticed some oddness with regard to flash media.
My situation seems to be that F9 loves to eat the contents of my SD cards.
In particular, my 128mb cards, various manufacturers, and they all wind up with the same result.
I have to reformat them with fat16 file systems in order to recover them. In some cases I even have to repartition them due to the extensiveness of the corruption.
Now, it should be noted that this happens when I'm moving files from one system to another. I copy the files from my laptop onto the sd card with a Kodak usb flash reader/writer. I then unmount the flash, wait till fedora gives me the all clear, and remove the card from the reader.
I then insert it into the reader on the front of my desktop, fedora recognizes it, mounts it and everything looks fine, for a little while.
In an example, I copied 6 MP3's onto the flash card from the laptop, moved it to my desktop, and launched VLC, cued up the mp3's VLC played all the files on the flash the first time through, but when it went to loop back to the beginning of the playlist, all the files were corrupted.
I notice that the 'activity' light flickers every now and then next to the card even when I'm not attempting to browse the card, and within a matter of minutes of the initial insertion the files on the flash card have become well-charred toast.
Anyone else have this kind of problem?
