     Dear All,

     exactly the same thing described by Francois happens with us too. 
When we transfer stuff onto the USB sticks, it takes some time to write, 
and, of course, we wait, but there is no indication when process is over 
and there is no viable procedure to safely pull the stick off. The 
result is that many times data on the stick appear corrupt and 
unreadable when transferred onto other machines.
     Our configuration is K12linux on F12, 32bit and we use sticks from 
Kingston and Transcend.
