I received a Father's day gift -  PNY 4 Gig flash drive.

FC-6 sees it as /dev/sdc1, /media/USB2FD and fdisk reports as below. How do I

not to reformat or change the file system?

Can I use it as is and how do I deal with it?

Partition table entries are not in disk order


I have a 1GB device from Memorex that shows up as follows. Just us
it as any other file system. You should be able to drag and drop, or
use the CLI to mkdir, rm, etc. It is a VFAT partition and the system
will know how to handle it.

Ok, yours looks similar to mine in fdisk.

I will try treating it like an external hard drive then. It will still take some time to trust it! I was able to use a miniature 40G hard drive she loaned me last week, that just worked, guess this is similar.
Thanks all.
