MP3 Players permissions changing in Win7 after Linux Use
I'm not sure if I am in the right section, so hopefully a mod will kindly move the thread if it is not.
I bought a Sony MP3 player last week. When I hooked up it up in Windows, I could browse the files and rename files and folders that were stored on it.
I hooked it up to see if it would work in Linux, which it did. I had both read/write privileges.
However, now anytime I plug into Windows, I only have read privileges. I can copy files/folders to the device, but once the files/folders are on the device, I can't rename them or delete them. I could previous do all these things prior to the first time I hooked the device up to Linux.
Interestingly enough, I still have those privileges in Linux.
This has happened to me before with flash drives. It's as if Linux is somehow changing something on these drives that is changing how Windows reads/recognizes the devices.
1) How can I restore the prior privileges to the device for windows (assuming this has to be done via Linux); and 2) how can I prevent this from happening in the future?
By the way, my friends and I have a $20 bet on this thread. ;)
