rsync error


I am trying to copy data from one disk to the other disk by connecting each disk to the USB port.

I got this error

Code:

$ rsync -av /mnt/usb1/* /mnt/usb2
.
.
.
Norton Ghost Backups.rar
rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 4 bytes [sender]: Broken pipe (32)
rsync: write failed on "/media/disk/wd_20080530/Norton Ghost Backups.rar": Read-only file system (30)
rsync error: error in file IO (code 11) at receiver.c(253) [receiver=2.6.8]
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (2012432 bytes received so far) [generator]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(463) [generator=2.6.8]
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (118 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(463) [sender=2.6.8]
Does anyone know what this mean? my usb1 is is vfat32 (external disk) and usb2 is my new disk with ext3 fs.

It clearly says that the destination is a read only filesystem, so you can't write to it. running "mount" shuold confirm that that location is mounted as "ro". how did you mount it in the first place?

it is a usb drive. and I just call

$ mount -t ext3 /dev/sdc1 /mnt/usb2

I will have to check the permission again. I posted it here since all other files are copied succesfully and it puzzle me.
