Important! As with memory card readers and certain digital cameras, when you're finished with the memory stick, you shouldn't simply unplug it. Instead, you need to unmount it first. Make sure you've saved and closed any files on the memory stick. You might also need to close any Nautilus file browser windows that are browsing the stick. Then, under GNOME, right-click its desktop icon and select Unmount Volume. Under KDE, open a Konqueror window, click Go > Storage Media, right-click the memory stick's icon, and select Safely Remove.
