    Here's what I do to protect USB sticks (from linux)

    touch recycler
    mkdir autorun.inf
    chmod ugo-w recycler autorun.inf

    It works by making a write protected directory that stops the drive from being set up to autorun, and preventing a trash directory from being set up – which is often used to hide viruses.
