System is in my signature. I am trying to make my Fufifilm DCR2-161 card reader usable.
At present when I connect it, (USB2) I get a box saying "You are not privileged to mount this volume".
/var/log/syslog tells me that it is identified as sdf1.
The command /dev $ ls -al shows that it belongs to root with permissions 660
When previously connected, a command /dev $ sudo chown -R theo /dev/sdf1 was successful, but the result of that disappeared after it was disconnected and re-connected. I hoped that it would result in automatic mounting.
I have now repeated that command, followed by: sudo mount /dev/sdf1 /media/Cardreader (where the destination has been created by a mkdir command).
The card reader is mounted, its icon appears in the desktop screen, and its properties show under the Volume tab that its Mount options are rw nosuid nodev noatime relatime uid=1000 default_permissions=allow_other.
In spite of the rw shown, when opened, its contained directory and files show properties 755.
Now I apply a command: / $ sudo chown -R theo:theo /media/Cardreader
The response is a multi-line report for every item contained in Cardreader: Operation not permitted.
Strangely, even after mounting, a new command /dev $ ls -al still shows sdf1 as belonging to me with permissions 660 - although the mounted ownership and partitions are root, 755.
Why is a sudo command not permitted? What can I do about it?
[Command problems remain].
How do I make this device auto-mount, belonging to me, with read-write permissions, when inserted?
[This question solved - see late posts].
Advice most gratefully received - I've been trying for a long time.
