flash memory


I am setting up my flash memory stick in MD 10. I can read and write in root but not in user.

Fstab is /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbstick ext2 user,auto,r,w 0 0.

Any suggestions?

Wink here's an idea...

the same thing happens to me sometimes if i mount as root and then try to access it as user.

try umounting as user and then remounting (again as user) to see if it makes a difference, it does for me. in fact in this screen shot you'll see to the top left icons used to mount external drives including a flashcard reader.

and also look to the left to see the moiunted drives ready for browsing....

check it out!
