It used to automatically create /dev/sdb1 when I inserted the memory stick, but no longer. Routine updating and rebooting of the OS has been done since it last worked. I'm on Centos 5.7. hald is running. I have tried 2 sticks, both of which work in other machines, and which have worked in this one in the past. The light comes on on the Sandisk Cruzer stick which I have tried. I have used 2 USB ports on the machine.
Does anyone have any idea what's wrong?

nothing relevant appears in /var/log/messages, or dmesg, though it used to IIRC.
