I am trying to transfer files from my laptop to a netbook machine using a USB memory stick. On inserting the stick into the machine running LMDE they get dumped into the trash can and the source files are deleted.
Any ideas as to what is wrong.

Reason:moved to LMDE forum
I would disable automount for a while and try to mount manually the USB stick to /mnt ou /tmp just to see if things are better. You have probably a problem with automount. It's like your stick is mounted into the dustbin
I have disabled automount and it seems to allow me to use USB memory sticks. However, a file that I had copied to the Desktop was dumped into the trashcan when I tried to change the file name. It is not recoverable from the trashcan and has to be completely deleted. Most strange behaviour and a problem. This is a an EeePC net book running LMDE.
