USB Mass Storage Device


Hey there! I need your help!
I have an USB Mass storage Device, but when I try to mount it I receive the message:

mount: block device /dev/sda1 is write-protected, mounting read-only

And I can't write over it. Is there a way to mount it with read/write attributes.

Thanks!

P.S. Excuse my English, it's horrible

Assuming you mounted it to /mnt/usb, what are the permissions on /mnt/usb after you mount it? You may just need to chmod. Also, if you are referring to a pendrive, note that some of them have a small switch to write-protect them (just like floppies) -- J.W.
