Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

fdisk and parted disagree on how the partition is allocated (the start in particular). Can't be good. I'd reckon you should delete that partition and reallocate it again using Linux tool(s) - gparted maybe a good choice.
You might want to reconsider the filesystem type as well - why did you choose ext2 ?. On a large extent like that there are (usually) better options.
many thanks for your help, what i have now done is to reinstall Kubuntu on the problem disc so i can now write to it, i know it's not an ideal solution but it has bodged me round the problem. I used ext2 because that was the default sooo being a newbie I assumed the software knew better than i did, I'll know better in future, once again many thanks for your suggestions I will know where to come in future.
Very Best Regards to all
