Let's try that again, this time as a fresh thread...
My USB Drive sometimes auto mounts as a read-only file system on Ubuntu 7.10
i386 desktop. This does not happen frequently, but when it does, it means I
can't update any files on the drive. How do I switch it to a read-write
file system? Is there something I can do to keep it from being mounted as
I have tried unmounting it and inserting it into another USB port, with the
same results. I am going to reboot my desktop to see if I can resolve this
issue. If that fails, I intend to copy all the files off the USB drive,
format it (as FAT32), and then restore the files.
