General :: Mobile Micro Sd Card Gets Mounted In Read Only Mode?
Aug 23, 2010
I am using ubuntu 10.04.My samsung e2120 has external micro sd card of 2GB.When i connect mobile to computer via cable in windows , it works normal as USB mass storage as configured by me in mobile settings.But in case of ubuntu 10.04
I am trying to read my SD car trough the external car reader but it does not work.A bit of maybe relevant info:it a SD adaptor with a micro SD memory of 1 G.It came from a nokia phone.what I know its working:the micro SD card is working came out my mobile phone the reader is working I have tested with other SD card the only left is the adaptor but very unlikely.Could some one help to with the command from the terminal to find the SD car drive name, mount it, and formatted?
I have an microsd card reader plugged in with usb. But when i insert my microsd card I can't see it in Dolphin. Do I have to mount it first? and how? and is it possible let it be mounted automaticly when I insert the card?
i have a problem with my 8gb mirco SD card. I have to make an ext3 partition on it, but the system do not even recognize it. I have tried with a 2gb card and everything is working right, so the problem isn't my netbook's card reader (it's a samsung n220).
i have an 8gb sandisk micro sd card that i was having problems with, so i decided to zero it out, problem is now i can't repartition it.i have tried gparted, the disk won't appear, but when it is attached, i can see a /dev/sdb in devices that isn't there otherwise.is it possible to create a new partition table on this, and how?also i am trying to 'sudo mkfs.vfat /dev/sdb' but it is saying
For the last several weeks i've been trying KDE and it's been working quite fine. There are however several minor issues with KDE.
First - how can i format a usb stick? In GNOME after the usb stick has been plugged in one just have to right click on it and select "Format". Here i don't see such an option. I googled it and i read somewhere that the tool for this would be KDE partition manager. I installed it but it looks like an overkill for the task. KDE partition manager is high level tool like GParted, whereas i'm looking for something that integrates into the desktop so i can just right click on the usb drive and select format. Besides KDE partition manager asks for a root password which is logical because it can format all your partitions. However i don't see the need for a root password when one is going to format a usb drive.
Second - i tried to use my micro sd card yesterday and while it mounted automatically i couldn't write anything on it or delete any of the files on it ( didn't have this problem with the usb stick though). How can i change that? I have a default Debian install with a nearly default KDE 4.6.5. In GNOME the SD card was always mounted writable by default.
Third - i am using Iceweasel, Rhythmbox and GIMP which are GTK applications. To make them look OK in KDE i installed gtk2-engines-oxygen and kde-config-gtk-style and i also installed the Oxygen KDE Firefox theme (from here [URL]). I then configured the GTK applications to use the oxygen engine and Rhythmbox and GIMP look perfectly OK (i've attached a screenshot at the bottom of my post) however Iceweasel doesn't look completely OK. The problem is that the color scheme of the window is slightly darker than the color scheme of the upper window border - i've attached screenshots of Rhythmbox and Iceweasel so you can compare. I've tried KDE 4.7 with Arch Linux and Firefox there looks OK just like Rhythmbox. It is a small detail but it bugs me...
Fourth - i have problem with the KDE theme for Firefox which i've installed. Without it Iceweasel doesn't look that good. With it, the find menu (activated with ctrl+f) doesn't work - instead of the regular search field just a very small box appears. I've posted a screenshot for that as well.
Every time I mount one partition manually as read write it works fine for a couple of minutes before reverting to read only. It still appears as read-write when I list the mounted directories but won't let me write to it. I have tried unmounting and remounting it, but after a few minutes it always ends up as read-only again.
$ mount /dev/sda3 on /scratch type ext3 (rw) $ mkdir /scratch/file
I administer a remote server via SSH that runs CentOS 5.5. I have been unsuccessful in all my attempts to write to two different external USB hard drives with a single ext3 partition when logged in as root.
When attempting to create a "test" directory I get one of two messages:
Both drives *appear* to have filesystem issues. When I run an fsck on either drive, I get:
Keep in mind this is a newly-formatted, empty drive.
Not putting stock in the odds that I've had two hard drives (different sizes and brands) with the exact same hardware problem, I'm going to assume this is a software issue, although maybe it isn't. Hence, my post in "Linux - General". I've heard talk elsewhere of controller (chipset) issues coming into play. Is this valid?
Okay, here's the information you'll need to make a diagnosis....
Here's the output of a "df -h" command:
Here's the contents of my /etc/fstab:
Here's the output of "cat /etc/mtab":
Here's the output of a mount command:
Here's the output of fdisk on the device in question:
The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 48641.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024, and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs (e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)
Command (m for help):
I've got someone with access to the box if necessary. But it might take days to implement solutions since this isn't his full-time job. Remote solutions are, therefore, preferable.
I am using Gentoo Linux and for a while now, the root file system is mounted read-only on booting. For obvious reasons, this is quite annoying as most services do not start up correctly (I do not use a separate file system for /var). After the system is up, I have to log in, remount the root file system read-write, fix /etc/mtab, mount all other file systems in from /etc/fstab and then start up all the missing daemons. I know that there are ways to make a system run properly with a read-only file system, but I would rather restore the old behaviour of a writable root file system.
The strange thing is that after running mount / -o remount,rw, the file system is mounted in writable mode without any errors. I suspected some problem with fsck, but now I have disabled automatic file system checks on the partition (tune2fs -c0 -i0).When I run dmesg, only these lines mention the partition at all, although I am not sure if not something gets lost because /var/log is not writable:
EXT3-fs (sda5): mounted filesystem with writeback data mode</code> EXT3-fs (sda5): using internal journal The line in /etc/fstab looks like this:
I have a 3ware controller that has a RAID 1 of two SATA disks.After an outage, the linux box (which is running ubuntu), restarted and the partition is now mounted read only. I only have the "/" mount point (this is a test server).Now, if I go to the 3ware controller by pressing ALT-3 while booting, I don't see any indication that there is something wrong with the disks.If I let the computer boot, I'm asked by fdisk if I want to fix/ignore/etc the inconsistencies found.
The why behind this is a little long winded so let me get to the technical question. I have a 16 GB SD card in my netbook as additional storage to the 16 GB SSD drive. The SD card is formatted fat32 (by a utility from sdcard.org which is supposed to and does make the card read and write faster than if it was formatted by the OS). The card mounts when I login to the netbook. The entry from mtab shows
ken@taylor13:/media$ ls -l drwx------ 3 ken ken 32768 1969-12-31 19:00 SD16
sudo chmod 777 SD16 does not change the permissions.
The problem is I need to connect to the machine with a different user (due to a security hole in gnome-commander). As the card is formatted fat I cannot assign group permissions to it and my second user cannot access it.
I had previously had the card formatted as ext3 and it was so slow as to be unusable. It needs to be formatted fat. I am stumped.
I am running a dedicated server with linux cent os 5.5 32 bit with lighttpd, php 5.2.14 and mysql
I am getting problem in my server. The filesystem enters read only mode automatically and then I can't edit any file in my server. This happens by itself. I tried to run fsck command and it gives the following output:
I have an HP laptop with a recently installed copy of Mint 8 KDE Community Edition. I created the initial admin user account ("joseph") when I installed.
I had an existing home directory under a different name from another installation, so I added a user with that name ("joe") and imported a copy of the original home directory. The user "joe" didn't have the same admin privileges as the initial "joseph" account, so I added "joe" to the sudoers file and the same groups as the initial admin user.
Everything works perfectly under this arrangement, for the most part. Now here's the problem:
I have a T-Mobile G1 phone that uses Android. I've rooted and ROM-modded the G1, and have the microSD card in the phone set up with two partitions. The vfat partition stores all the photos, music and other stuff the phone needs. The ROM mod allows me to store apps on the SD card, so that second partition uses ext3 for its file system.
When I'm logged in as the admin "joseph" account and I insert the SD card in the laptop's card slot (or plug the phone into the USB port), the SD card can be mounted, and I have full access to both card partitions. I can see all folders. I do this to backup the contents of the card to an external drive (especially the apps in the ext3 partition, since that's been trashed on me once before on the phone).
However, when I log in as "joe", I cannot view the contents of the ext3 partition at all. I can see the vfat drive fine, and the ext3 partition mounts, but with user/group "joseph/joseph." When I open Dolphin to view the mounted ext3 partition, I get the error "could not enter folder /media/disk-1" at the bottom of the view window in Dolphin.
Here are the relative entries returned when I run "mount" to view the mounted drives:
/dev/mmcblk0p1 on /media/disk type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,uid=1001,utf8,shortname=mixed,flush) /dev/mmcblk0p2 on /media/disk-1 type ext3 (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal)
Note that the uid listed on the vfat mount is 1001, which is the gid for the "joe" account.
I know there must be a configuration setting somewhere that will allow the ext3 partition to automount under the "joe" user account. I suppose that using the admin account to change the permissions would be the easy way to do this, but there must be something that would do it automagically. I've ripped through all the config files I can find, but can't seem to find anything that would help.
All I'm looking for here is enough access to be able to copy the directories on that mount to my external drive.
I've had a look at some similar threads but as I'm very new to linux they're already a bit technical for me. Sorry, this calls for someone with patience. I gather from other threads that disconnecting an external drive without unmounting is a no-no, and this seems to be the likely cause. Now the disk is read only and I'm unable to change any settings through the usual control panel on ubuntu. I'm just not familiar with the terminal instructions. I tried to cut and past a few command lines from other threads but I got some warnings that proceding could damage data. Like this one: WARNING! Running e2fsck on a mounted filesystem may cause SEVERE filesystem damage.
I want to monitor network traffic with ntop from a Lucid 10.04 machine. Both NICs have picked up an IP address, I need to put one in promiscuous mode. I typed sudo ifconfig eth1 promisc and the response was SIOCSIFFLAGS: Permission denied.I also tried sudo su ifconfig eth1 promisc[sudo] password for user1: I put it in Unknown id: ifconfig
I have a low maybe medium experience with linux and no experience with unix and migrating from freenas to Ubuntu.I'm trying to transfer 12 TB of data from UFS file system to ext3 file system under Ubuntu 10.04. The server has two 16TB virtual disks (raid10) and one 4TB virtual disk (raid10 too).I mount the UFS virtual disk in Ubuntu with this command:
Code: mount -r -t ufs -o ufstype=ufs2 /dev/sda1 /home/ufsdisk I am able to read only 6TB of data instead of 12TB. The missing folders can be seen in
I was attempting to reformat a 16GB MicroSD card in my camera when the battery died mid-way. After that, any time I try to read the card in my camera, it gives me a "Card Error" and does not allow me to reformat it in my camera.
So, I thought I would plug the camera in to the laptop with it set to host the card as media when plugged in as USB, in an attempt to fix the formatting issue.
However, when I plug it in to my linux machine, it does not register as a device (e.g., /dev/sda) due to some errors, therefore I cannot reformat it. Essentially, I think I need to fix the partition table but I'm not sure how to when it doesn't register as a device. code...
