Now when I try `mount /dev/sda1 temp/`, it sits for a few
minutes, and finally returns this: 'mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid
block device', and /var/log/messages has this:

I have had some success at formatting these types of key in
Linux, but fdisk doesn't show sda at all (it cannot read the partition
table). I tried the key on FC2test2, where I could fdisk it. But I
still could not mount it on either OS.
| Any ideas?
fdisk only creates a partition. Did you format the partition afterwards
and create a usable file system on it?
Lookup: 'man mkfs' ....
You also need to know what format the other device you are using it in
supports (camera, recorder, etc.) Otherwise, you will end up with a
flash that is only readable by Linux boxes.
