    flash memory


    In past ubuntu OS's if I plugged a camera or memory stick it was detected and I could address the media. Now when I try to use a memory stick it says it is read-only and I have been unsuccessful in changing permissions. Additionally I plugged a digital picture frame into a USB port and the device was not detected.

    How do I fix these issues?

    I'm using Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon.

    Dumb question by me but are you root when your trying to change the permissions? Also I've experienced problems with the 'u+xr..' types of notations at times and finally just started using octal numbers, like

    $ sudo chmod 755 filename

    Hope this helps...

    Not in console as root. Tried to change permissions by right clicking the device and using the tab for permissions. It trys but just churns away.
