Unhappy USB devices read only after update


Hi folks,

it is not quite a netbook issue, but I'm writing this on Eee PC 901. My system is Eeebuntu netbook-remix.

I hope anyone can help my with my problem:
USB devices, as USB key and SD card, are automatically mounted as read only.

What I have found out:

1. The problem accrued after I automatically updated libsndfile1. Before that update I could write on both devices. They were both mounted as writable and afterwards they are only readable.
2. dmesg | grep -i panic told me: "FAT: Filesystem panic (dev sdd)"
3. mount says:
Code:
/dev/sdc1 on /media/ARMENDRON type vfat (ro,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,shortname=mixed,uid=1000,utf8,umask=077,flush)
/dev/sdd on /media/disk-1 type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,shortname=mixed,uid=1000,utf8,umask=077,flush)
Yes, one is mounted als "ro", but also mounted as "rw" it is not writeable.
4. mtab is the same:
Code:
/dev/sdc1 /media/ARMENDRON vfat ro,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,shortname=mixed,uid=1000,utf8,umask=077,flush 0 0
/dev/sdd /media/disk-1 vfat rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,shortname=mixed,uid=1000,utf8,umask=077,flush 0 0
What I have tried:

1. Downgraded to the old libsndfile1. -> No effect.
2. Mounted all devices on my own. -> No effect.
3. Tried chmod for write permission. -> Does not work on read-only devices.
4. Tried fsck.vfat. -> No errors.
5. All data is there and is readable and executable, but no possibility to write data.

Any suggestions? I would be really happy, because I am totally helpless.

Best regards
motoko

P.S. Sorry, my English is bad....
