SD card automounts as a read only filesystem

Postby oakhilltop on Sat Feb 04, 2012 9:19 pm

I have been using a SD card on Mint 12 for awhile now. So far, I have left the filesystem as is.
When I insert it now, it automounts as a read only file system. Something changed because I have written over 1Gb on this card using Mint.

Where do I look to change this to mounting as writable?

I'm using cinammon, but have also used XFCE. I just tried XFCE and that automounted it as read only also

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

For several weeks I have put my camera SD card into the reader and been able to import and delete the files... but today it started mounting read only. This is another major blow for my Linux Mint install - since the 'rename to exif' option stopped working with nautilus!

What gives?

You could create an entry in /etc/fstab similar to

UUID=943579873489273947randomlongstring /media/sd auto rw,noauto,user,sync 0 0

Then just click in nautilus to mount.

Also, that little bugger tag on the card gets switched awfully easy.

Sudo blkid will show the proper uuid
You'll need to make a folder /media/sd to mount to.

If your still having trouble with permissions, mount it to a folder within your home directory with rw permissions

I just tried this to no avail. I'm running Mint 13 Nadia, 64-bit, Cinnamon. There are no entries in /mnt at all. With the 4gig card in the card slot on my HP Pavilion laptop, the card is automatically 'mount'ed as read-only. sudo blkid returns:

/dev/sda1: UUID="F6FCF0E3FCF09F55" TYPE="ntfs"
/dev/sda2: UUID="7E70F6F170F6AF51" TYPE="ntfs"
/dev/sda4: UUID="d8e3e2f2-db3b-4b0b-bb73-c1ad2d399221" TYPE="swap"
/dev/sda5: UUID="8609e430-d523-40ac-a084-e27a38faa5d5" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/mmcblk0p1: LABEL="EOS_DIGITAL" UUID="1C0B-1524" TYPE="vfat"


Not clear as to what of this goes in /etc/fstab... also, does this mean a card has to live in the drive slot permanently? And how does one "mount it to a folder within your home directory with rw permissions"... still a bit of a newb in this. :oops:
