    iPod Mount Changes Permissions [Solved]


    I cannot figure out how to mount my iPod (vfat) as read/write for all users, with udev. It really causes problems with GtkPod.

    Here's my fstab entry for it:
    Code:
    /dev/sda2         /mnt/ipod   vfat      noauto,user,rw,sync,nodev,nosuid      0 0
    Before mounting, I've set the permissions to this:
    Code:
    drwxrxwrxw  2 neil users 48 Jun  7 20:35 ipod
    Once mounted by the user "neil", the permissions become this:
    Code:
    drwxr--r--  6 neil users 4096 Dec 31  1969 ipod
    The drive itself is mounted as read-only, so I am unable to change the permissions or ownership once it's mounted.

    How can I counteract this?

    Try haveing the fstab line like:
    Code:
    /dev/sda2         /mnt/ipod   vfat      noauto,user,rw,sync,nodev,nosuid,umask=0000     0 0

    GtkPod still can't add any files, even though Konqueror says that everyone can "View and Modify Content":

    Hmm, strange, (I take it that you remounted the device after changing the fstab), have you tried a line like:
    Code:
    /dev/sda2         /mnt/ipod   vfat      noauto,users,rw,sync,nodev,umask=0000     0 0

    Hi all I am having the same problem....except editing fstab isn't working for me.

    Any other ideas? It was all working fine up until yesterday, and then my iPod just turned into read only!

    This is driving me nuts...help!

    Hi,

    I believe the problem you are having maybe due to a filesystem error on the ipod.

    do a
    cat /etc/mtab to find what id has been given to your device

    then (if /dev/sdb2) run

    dosfsck /dev/sdb -a to automatically fix errors

    take the -a off if you want to go through each error one by one.

    Good Luck!
