Created attachment 1239327 [details]

Description of problem:

Whether inserted before or after mediawriter launch; whether partitioned and FAT formatted, or wipefs -a has been used, mediawriter does not recognize this Lexar USB stick for unknown reasons. No error messages.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch mediawriter
2. Choose an image to write
3. Insert 2GiB Lexar USB stick

Actual results:

Kernel sees the stick, but mediawriter denies seeing any devices.

Expected results:

The image is 1.5GiB, the stick is 2GiB, it should be possible to write to this stick.
