16GB USB Drive Not Accessible



I recently bought a snazzy new 16GB USB pen drive from the local store -
it was only $29! I have several drives that are 8GB and smaller from the
same store that are the same brand.

Imagine my surprise when:
* The 16GB drive is not accessible on either F9 or F10 Snap 3
* The 8GB drives all work just fine on both F9 and F10 Snap 3
* The 16GB drive works fine on Windows XP
* The 16GB drive also works on a Windows XP VM running on top of F9!!!

I can only conclude from this that something is a miss that causes F9 to
not be able to access and use USB pen drives that are bigger than 8GB,
and that this most likely has something to do with a file system driver
or such.

Anyone else seen this yet? Is there a fix / work-around?

Here's the dmesg output for those who might be interested:
