I rebooted the machine and my USB drive is now working the way that it's
supposed to. If it happens again, though, I'll take a look in /var/log
and see what I can see, as they say.

You will not catch me moving over to Macs any time soon. Again, I've
been using Linux for a very long time, so the issue isn't what my own
personal preferences are: I've had other options and have always come
back to Linux for a myriad of reasons that I won't bother with here as
you will all probably agree with all of them.
I guess the point that I was making is that if the goal is to get more
people to migrate to Linux, the little things have to work. There was a
time when I revelled in having to stay up all night to get my video card
working by playing with settings editing XF86Config in vi. Most people
want their computer to actually work, though, and that means that the
little things have to work, too.
Thanks and cheers,
