Hi Frank,


Thank you for your suggestion. I'll check that out, too.

However these are always different USB-Sticks in order to exchange patch

So what I did was use [shell]:


First create an empty directory "usb" in the root folder and then


[mount /dev/sdb1 /usb(




That does the trick. "Unmount" doesn't work this way, however.

For some reason [shell] doesn't seem to accept all possible/needed commands.


I'll try some other commands like "kill" or something similar.
