OK, the problem is probably that the USB stick doesn't really contain a valid partition.

Probably the easiest way to format it would be run "Disk Utility" (it'll be in the menus somewhere).. select the USB stick in the left column (be careful to select the right one) .. then on the right select make sure it says "Device: /dev/sdb" .. then click  "Unmount Volume", then "Format Drive"

Scheme: Master Boot Record

then click the "Format" button

when asked if you're sure, click the "Format" button

Now click "Create Partition"

Size: it will probably already have all of it selected
Type: FAT
Name: MyStick
Encrypt underlying device = UNTICKED

Now click the "Create" button.

I think it's just called disks Melissa under system tools

AFAIK it wasn't called "Disks" until 12.10 or 13.04 .. Mint 13 is based on 12.04
(unless of course Mint did a custom version)

Open a terminal and post the output from:
dpkg -l | grep palimp
and
dpkg -l | grep gnome-disk

[EDIT]

If it's the new version, those instructions may not apply

Try:
sudo apt-get install gnome-disk-utility

I do wish they'd stop changing the names of things  ::)

Just remembered....don't know if this is relevant or not- but this data stick I was using on  the Microcrap XP an d not long after using it on Linux the files went AWOL ( not a prob as had them stored on the portable  HD) and then it was blank on both systems. Tried it in a printing shop and on this netbook. Might there have been a virus on it? I don't mind putting it in the recycling bin, after all i have the HD.
