Can't Write to USB Devices...
I have a USB key and an MP3 player. I've used the Key before on Linux, and pulled things off, but I've just now realized that I am unable to write to it. When I mount it, ls shows me its permissions as:
When I attempt to remove a file on my USB key, I get the error:
rm: cannot remove `adblock.txt': Read-only file system
I'm doing this through the terminal as root (thus I should have write permissions), and it still won't work. I also modprobed for the sd_mod module (something about writing to SCSI drives), which worked, but I still can't write to the key.
My dmesg identifies the device as:
Vendor: LEXAR Model: DIGITAL FILM Rev: /W1.
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
If anyone has any suggestions for getting this to work, I'd be grateful.

do you have rw set in the fstab line for the key?
for mounting/unmounting etc flash devices look here http://www.linuxforums.org/tutorials...ial-26510.html
you could also try resetting the permissions with chmod 700, or chmod 770.
hope this helps

Alright, the problem was that instead of "rw", I had "ro" set in the fstab line. I changed that, and it's fixed. Thanks.
