Make sure you have the latest kernel, it works for me,
it takes a few seconds but when I plug the USB key
I end up getting valid listings in /media.

My PC has one external 200GB USB2 MAXTOR 5000DV (with one FAT and one
ext3 partition) and I often plug/unplug a "noname" 256MB USB key between
home and work (FAT).

Since the automatically generated names are not that user-friendly,
I made symbolic links (maxtor1,maxtor2,key1). May be it would
be useful to add an option to Yast2 to give symbolic
names to currently mounted devices and to have the tools
automatically create them when a device is mounted
(may be it's even already possible but I could not
find it).

Hope this helps,

Laurent
