I do not mean .swf files by flash but I mean my flash memory files

I presume you have a folder mounted under /media when the USB key is inserted?
Can you open a terminal window (Applications menu, Accessories) and type the following...

ls /media/yourusbdrive

where yourusbdrive is replaced by the name of the folder that refers to your USB key.

It would be interesting to see what show up with that.

Nothing showed up!
Tried twoice:

ehobayyeb@ehobayyeb-laptop:~$ ls /media/disk
ehobayyeb@ehobayyeb-laptop:~$ ls /media/disk
ehobayyeb@ehobayyeb-laptop:~$

I saw in GParted and properties of the flash memory that there is a 54MG used I think these are my moved files after force mount the flash memory.
Is there a very deeper way to list everything in this device?

thanks

Can you post the contents of

cat /etc/mtab

This shows what has been mounted and how...
