Question Help with /etc/fstab


Hello Everyone:

I do have a problem with my SanDisk compact flash card. It worked very nicely for last month but now appears that if I want to transfer any files from my hardrive to CF, a message shows that the disc is read-only.

Please have a look at my /etc/fstab file and please help me to clean it from undesired lines (do you have any ideas?).

Thank you,
Wawosz

/etc/fstab file:
--------------------------

/dev/hdb7 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/hdb6 /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
none /mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/scd0,fs=auto,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=auto,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/nt ntfs iocharset=iso8859-1,ro,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hda5 /mnt/nt2 ntfs iocharset=iso8859-1,ro,umask=0 0 0

under /dev/sdb1, at "rw" to your options so it looks like this:

/dev/sdb1 /mnt/memorycard auto user,rw,iocharset=iso8859-

see if that works

BusBarn: well it didn't work :-( I don't know why it happened that CompactFlash (SanDisk) is read-only now...

Well I will wait for other remarks.
Thanks

Have you tried changing the umask for the flashcard to 0000? so that everything is given all permissions, ive never worked with flashcards so i dont know, but you might want to try it.
