This explains why the ISO is so small. No files in it.
(The size consists mainly of the traditional 300 KB of padding at the
 end of the image.)

Last time you showed it, it was as empty as the ISO.
What do you get from

  ls -ld /media/user/1340a59d-7c08-4257-a81d-9cb8ef707c0e

Very strange file address. It is probably the result of link following.
Thus my request to do "ls -ld".

Is the line break between "DebonUSB" and "/usb-Kingston" visible on the
terminal screen, too ? Or is it an artefact of copy+paste ?

(I am very happy that i disabled automounting on my system. Life becomes
 so clear and straightforward if one does it the old way.)

Have a nice day :)
