tsites notes and tips

If your USB drive mounts as read-only, edit the fstab file:

sudo mousepad /etc/fstab

(where mousepad is the name of your text editor)

type your root password and press return.

Look for the name of your drive in the file. If you see an entry next to it saying ro, change it to rw.
Save the changes, and reboot.
The drive should remount as read/write access when your log back in.

(Why you'd not want read/write access on USB drives as default is beyond me)
