Maxtor OneTouch USB Hard Drive
I have just got myself an external USB Maxtor OneTouch 4 hard drive and connected to my linux machine -- OS: openSUSE 10.2 (X86-64). A window pops up and I even can find it in the media directory and see all the files and directories which was already on it. However, I am unable to make a new directory, nor copy any files in it. The message produced is:
mkdir: cannot create directory `mytest': Read-only file system
Does anybody have any idea as to what the cause of this would be and how to fix it?
Please note that I am not a Linux expert, so please be specific on what steps are needed.
I appreciate it very much.
