USB fix? After installing the 10.3.1 Update, reader Robert Cowie reports that his USB Flash Drives -- which refused to function for him under Mac OS X 10.3 -- are now functioning properly. Indeed, as mentioned above, one of the files updated by the OS X 10.3.1 Update is the IOStorageFamily kernel extension, which affects USB storage devices.
