"cannot change file permissions" error when moving data to and from pendrive


whenever i move data onto or off of my pendrive, i get a pop up dialog about not being able to change the file permissions, and then i have to hit an ok dialog. when you are moving hundreds of files at a time (moved directores which totaled to 900 files) having to hit ok for ever single file is quite the pain in the butt.

im posting my fstab file in case it helps any.

/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/hdb1 /Oneniisama ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0022,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom2 auto umask=0022,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0022,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850 0 0
none /mnt/removable supermount dev=/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0000,user,rw,noauto,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0


Thank for any help guys

Presumably your pen drive mounts on /mnt/removable ?
If so then you need to add mount options like umask rw noexec etc
This may lengthen the life of your mouse button and your finger

it already has umask and rw and noauto though it sometimes likes to auto mount itself

and stupid question perhaps do i need an fstab entry for EVERY single pendrive? i have 3 altogehter.

Not according to the fstab listing you posted "none /mnt/removable supermount"

do i need an fstab entry for EVERY single pendrive? i have 3 altogehter.

Not unless you want then available concurrently , say like cdrom and cdrom2

In the new year I'll try this on my 10.1 setup see what it says

can someone please correct my fstab entry to exactly what i need to change it to? I dont understand fstab enough to be adding stuff to it, there appear to be some format to it of what goes where.
