I've got a 1 Gb usb stick that is recognized without problem but I can't figure out how to alter its permissions so I can write to it. I also have a 30+Mb folder on the stick that refuses to be deleted claiming 'unrecognized files' - or some such thing. Using sudo in the terminal doesn't seem to help either. I'm sure it's easy - when you know how. Any one know how?

What is the file format on your pendrive? If its NTFS try using FAT32.

Is there any solution to this? Now my 2GB SanDisk (No U3 system) is acting up, and I need to be able to read and write. I havent found a solution with Mintdisk.

Have a look at how I altered the permissions on my USB drive...
