Re: USB disks?

Do all these USB 2.0 disk drives "just work" under linux,
or are there the typical variations in compatibility that
seem to plague everything?

Any particular model USB 2.0 external drive with exceptional
linux support out there? Good experiences to report?

Thanks for any info.


I have used a few different USB drives and drive adapters, and I have not found one yet that doesn't just work when you plug it in. With older distributions, I have run into problems of having to mount drives with more then one partition manualy, but even that works automatically now.
