read only error
I bought a USB hard disk (usb 1.1) and put 2 partitions on it. I mounted both partitions flawlessly. However, partition 1 is mounted with read and write access to all users. When i try to change access of partition 2 i get an error that says 'cannot change permissions to a read only disk'.
To the best of my knowledge, i never made partition 2 read only. How can i get around this and give access to all users?
Try adding users to 'usb' group.
I had the same error with a normal vfat-partition of mine. whatever i did and however i mounted it, I could sometimes touch my data on the partition one time and then there was this read-only system error.
I did a filesystem-check then and there were hundreds of cluster-errors which were corrected. After I made this, I could work with the partition about 2 days and then there was the same error again.
I deleted the partitions now and made new ones, so it's maybe a hardware error :?
