Mandriva cannot mount USB Flash Key Drive

After reinstalling Mandriva vSpring 2008 in the same Linux partition. Normal formatting was undertaken during installation. The Swap file is in an adjacent partition.

1. Even after entering the correct root password, the console does not permit changes or looking up libraries-permission denied.

2. Previously, when Mandriva was installed, I could copy and paste into the USB2 Flash Key drive, now it is denied and shows as an error.

There was an error while copying screenshot.png

Error opening the file /media/removable/Screenshot.png-permission denied.

3. In Windows XP Pro, I have performed Safely remove the drive, permission was granted for removal.

Permissions of "removable" could not be determined.

Mount Options: allow_utime=1777777 codepage=cp437

Cure please

I use 2008.1 when I plug in usb stick and allow it to mount it mounts to

it can also be seen as /dev/sdb because I already have something at sda

Did you change anything in /etc/alternatives or /etc/fstab to get /media/removable?

2) can you post your /etc/fstab

3) what messages do you see when you insert usb stick....can you post pls?

4) I am not sure what you mean by your console error....but if you mean you are trying to see usb stick try

cd /media/disk/
