The Samsung brand 1G device I bought a few weeks ago has been working with no 
problems. It does not appear to have a write protect switch.

The ByteStor 1G device I bought a few months ago also works with no problems. 
It seems to be formatted with two partitions. The very small partition had 
the windows files in it. I deleted those and use it to keep a separate copy 
of my kwallet. Strange but if I set the write protect switch on this device 
it seems to stop working altogether, with both windows and FC5 (and FC3).
