1) Create a directory in /mnt called usbstorage (need to be root)
2) Edit /etc/fstab and add following lines :
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usbstorage vfat noauto,user,exec,showexec,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0

(iso 8859-1 for Western European)

Introduce your key and right click on the desktop to mount usbstorage, you will have an icon coming on the top. Double click and you are in usb directory.
The choice of vfat allows to communicate with proprietary systems.

Important : never forget to umount device before extracting the key.

The good news is that also works when you plugin a digital camera.
