    hi there,

    I wonder, what happend to my USB stick -- it mounted just fine a few times and after I accidently clicked on "fix position" I think, the icon changed. After I clicked "free position"the icon disappears.

    I re-booted a few times without the stick plugged and checked Shell "info" - the system sees the stick
    and it appears to be mounted - but I can not see it anywhere (be it on Ambient or "MYMorphos")

    :(

    any help would be great

    Try Mounter from Tools dir. (Unmount then again Mount USB Stick)

    So I started "Mounter" and it shows the stick as "Usbscsi.device" FAT format.
    I can unmount an re-mount it, but still nothing on the desktop :(

    Hmmm - looks like I may need to format it on Windows and try again?!

    Strange behavior... other sticks are not even getting recognized

    Can you list files from the stick in the shell?

    Are you sure it isn't on My MorphOS? Because if you'd put it away from the desktop, it should still be in the My MorphOS list...


    Yes, I can list files with shell command - yes it definitely does not show in MyMorphOS

    I can even see the stick shown as device in file-dialogs - but still not on Ambient Desk or MyMorphOS, strange thing...

    I can copy stuff via shell commands, so I think this is (kind of solved) - even if the USB Stick´s icon does not appear anymore...


    edit: HA ! I deleted the .info file(s) from the stick and now, it shows up on desktop again :)

    SOLVED

    strangely, MorphOS renders Icons "not visible" if I go and "fix/snapshot" a certain window (!)
    If I do, the Icon for USB-stick and Work-disk partition are gone (and this stays even after a re-boot!)

    Only solution was, to delete the still existing "disk.info" on these devices and copy over new ones.
    Then both are back on Ambient desktop....

    I changed the original MorphOS icons - I am using OS 4.1 glow-icons as replacements for "harddisk" and "USB"

    kind of strange behavior, I guess
