Problem for certain usbs
Hey every one, can any body tell me why smetimes certain pendrives are inserted , and while creating files, it says "Read only filesystem", hw can i rid this prblm, after cuming this error msg , i used to format my pen drive, sme drives still shows after formatting, but others dont, its only error msg i'm getting, so dont knw what to do?

will ther be more information in dmesg, but it too i cant find anything useful

Concept: while usb drive inserted it shows" Read only file system" and stops process

use -v with mount and you should see this (for example):


/dev/sdb2 on /mnt/usb type ext2 (rw)
If rw is ro, then umount and try again this way (presuming the device has an fstab entry):

mount -v -o rw /dev/sdb2
You can also set this option in /etc/fstab
