usb stick as a data transfer mechanism

Sat Apr 13, 2013 8:56 am

I want to...

a) rpi to boot up
b) format usb stick (maybe)
c) mount usb stick
d) copy data to usb stick
e) unmount usb stick
f) read data from usb stick in windows or linux via windowing system - to upload to a website

i have corrupted a few sticks, i think having the stick mounted when the power goes off, formatting the stick on windows or ubuntu gives different behaviour etc. also umount /dev/sda1 rather than umount /media/usbstick doesn't help!

any ideas?
