I am coming to believe my problem is unique!
I was given a usb disk (64mb) by an organization. They were jerks and modified it slightly.
When you insert it in linux, it is automatically loaded as 2 disks (usb1, usb2) where usb1 is a directory with a piture, Autorun.inf, and a binary file called browserrun.exe. In windows this partition loads automatically as a cdrom and displays the picture. I want to remove the partition.
I umount the partition and fdisk it (fdisk /dev/sda) and I get:
"You will not be able to write the partition table."
and the message is correct
I have tried remounting with " -o rw " but get the message:
"mount: block device /dev/sda is write-protected, mounting read-only"
The filesystem is vfat.
Please help me!!! I just want to delete the partition and enlarge the other one.
