Description Gerald Cox 2007-04-23 21:30:06 UTC
Description of problem: Runinng F7 Test 3 and found that USB drives when inserted are read-only. The way I had corrected this was to create an entry in FSTAB; but I thought that this was suppose to be handled automatically. I have a FC6 system and don't have any entries in FSTAB and it works correctly. Owner and group are both Root. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Lastest maintenance for Fedora 7 Test 3 applied. How reproducible: Every time USB Flash Drive is inserted. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Insert USB Drive 2. Try to write to USB Drive. Actual results: Device write protected. Expected results: Device writable. Additional info:

I also have the same issue and fixed it by entering the appropriate fstab entries. The expected result is for the removable drive to be mounted as read/write for the user or a particular group.

Same for me. ext2 usb pen on an x86_64 FC7. This is a significant issue. Possibly related?? A CD-RW with data on it cannot be erased by nautilus because it is mounted. But nautilus cannot umount, only eject. So you need to know what you are doing to erase this.

(In reply to comment #2) > Same for me. ext2 usb pen on an x86_64 FC7. > This is a significant issue. Uh, there's no way to use uid= on ext2/ext3 since uid/gid are encoded in the file system itself. The original bug report was for fat I assume so I will close this bug as a duplicate. > Possibly related?? A CD-RW with data on it cannot be erased by nautilus > because it is mounted.

The way it works is that nautilus-cd-burner automatically unmounts before erasing and asking for confirmation whether you really want to erase the data that is on the disc already. If it doesn't work this way, please file a bug against nautilus-cd-burner. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 234716 ***
