File copy troubles-USB
I'm facing a weird problem: I must carry a huge amount of .DEB packages to my working place, but I have to do it with USB. The pendrive is almost empty, but I'm getting error unable to write to /media/disk/somefile.deb.
I've tried to change the chmod for files both on the source (hda5) and the destination (disk).
I've tried to solve this using Krusader, but no solution. I've tried different USB-drives with same result.
I've checked. It mounts rw by default. It starts to copy the files but after cca. 60MB hangs with error message. USB is an old illness of Linux.
Well, I've done something, and partially solved the situation: I've created a new folder on the USB and placed all the files INSIDE. It let me copy the files. What lies behind?
Why can't I copy all to the root of the USB ?
