Having successfully used a USB stick to solve a wireless driver problem yesterday, I began today to transfer my notes on that subject from the laptop to the USB stick, but failed.
Upon plugging in the stick, I am asked if I want to open the device in File Manager, to which I agreed (what else?!). The device appears not in the customary position in the list but in /media/device-name, and although I can open files in that folder, I cannot move files between the device and the laptop via the File Manager.
I can move files using terminal commands.
Your help would be appreciated.
