Re: [opensuse-factory] Can't mount fat32 USB sticks anymore

Hi!

Since a recent update (also had a problem with snapper rollback, so I can't
be too sure the problem is from the update), I can't mount fat32 USB sticks
any more using Plasma interface. The displayed name of the USB key is wrong
(it displays a name like Kubuntu-x64-xxxx from when the USB was formatted to
be a live USB, which it's not any more, very strange!) and clicking on "Open
in File Manager" results in "Impossible to mount".

This means that you did not erase the critical areas before formatting
it again as FAT. That situation has been described here some time ago,
but I don't remember details enough to locate the thread or link.

It doesn't fully explain why it does not mount automatically, only why
the label is confused. maybe the system is sufficiently confused to not
attempt to mount automatically.

I would, thus, try with a new stick or a used one that you did not
repurpose.
