Ubuntu :: USB Flash Boot Drive Goes Read-only

Aug 24, 2010

I have a linux server running ubuntu 10.04, kernel Linux server 2.6.32-22-generic #33-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 28 13:28:05 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux. A few months ago I installed ubuntu to a USB flash drive (Patriot 16GB) and was able to successfully boot off it, and everything was running fine. Then all of a sudden I noticed that the root filesystem was read-only, and I saw errors in the kernel log:

[ 725.528732] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdc] Unhandled sense code
[ 725.528742] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdc] Result: hostbyte=DID_OK driverbyte=DRIVER_SENSE
[ 725.528750] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdc] Sense Key : Medium Error [current]
[ 725.528759] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdc] Add. Sense: Unrecovered read error
[ 725.528768] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdc] CDB: Read(10): 28 00 00 1e 00 cc 00 00 d0 00

I tried reading the drive to see if there was a problem with the drive itself:

root@server:~# dd if=/dev/sdc of=/dev/null
dd: reading `/dev/sdc': Input/output error
1966184+0 records in
1966184+0 records out
1006686208 bytes (1.0 GB) copied, 2.12427 s, 474 MB/s

But the strange thing is that if I put that usb stick in a different linux server, I'm able to read the whole drive. If I run fsck, it fixes a bunch of errors, but when I put the drive back in the original PC it will work for a while and then fail with the same type of I/O error (not at the same offset though). I had this same problem occur on a different USB stick in the same server, I had thought it was bad media so I replaced it, but now the same problem is happening on a different usb drive. I have backups of the data, but I would really like to figure out what is causing this before I throw in the towel and buy a new PC.

Installation :: 8GB Flash Drive Because My D Drive Doesn't Read DVDs?

Jun 20, 2010

I bought an 8GB flash drive because my D drive doesn't read DVDs. Anyway, my goal is to install Linux ubuntu and have it be my OS (replacing Windows XP). Last night I went to the Ubuntu homepage and downloaded the Ubuntu desktop edition 32-bit and put it on my flash drive. I followed the instructions on how to open and run it, but I was never asked about whether I want Linux to run side by side with Windows or if I want it to replace Windows. It downloaded the whole program, my computer restarted and then (on a black screen) it asked if I wanted to use Windows XP Home Edition or Linux Ubuntu. It's really frustrating because it took a while to download and install it in the first place AND to top that off, when I tried to use Ubuntu it went to a black screen and at the top said that there was an error. So I uninstalled all the ubuntu program and software and now I have a clean slate and want to try this again. I am a complete n00b. Could someone please walk me through how I can go about downloading (w/ links plz), installing and making ubuntu my ONLY OS on my computer via a flash drive? I'm desperate and I don't want to go through all of that and make the same mistake again!

Ubuntu :: A Software Has Turned Flash Drive's Filesystem Into Read Only?

Aug 5, 2010

Some moments ago, I plugged my drive into a computer with some strange data protection software. It turned my drive's filesystem into read only and now it can neither be formatted nor mounted with write option. I've tried

$ sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb
but it doesn't work.

The problem is, the computer and the software that have caused this problem has lost forever.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Files Not Being Read Correctly In Media Player?

Jan 20, 2011

I am not sure what is happening with my music, but it's driving me mad and making me pull out my hair. My ID tags are not being read correctly through through both Rhythmbox and Banshee, but my tag editor, dBpoweramp, and Ubuntu properties reports the information correctly. All of my music is stored on another computer stream via the network. For example, I have an album by X Japan label as this:Track: Break the DarknessArtist: XAlbum: I'll Kill You EPYear: 1985

But banshee breaks up the album into two different albums, and on top of that, Banshee see it as X Japan, but reads it as X for the artist. And it's not just this album, it happens to a lot of my albums, sometimes they are missing tracks or mislabel or missing cover art, etc, etc, but only within the media player. Why is this happening and has anyone else notice this?Ubuntu 10.10 x64Banshee 1.8.0Rhythmbox 0.13.1Music streamed over network

Debian Multimedia :: Movie Player Cannot Read From Resource

May 22, 2011

I can not watch a DVD video using Movie Player. It gives the message: An Error Ocurred Can not read from resource. What does it want me to do ? Buy a new DVD player ? I have no trouble with this drive in another distribution on the same computer, or playing audio CDs in this very Debian OS. So I don't think there is anything wrong with the DVD drive. VLC won't do anything either.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Read DVDs, Able To Read CDs?

Mar 15, 2011

The titles says about everything. CD's are perfectly automounted.WhenI insert a DVD however (I tried various DVDs), absolutely nothing happens, as if I would have inserted nothing or a blank DVD.I already read lots of threads and nothing o help... Here are the outputs of a few commands that might or might not be useful.A line I added myself in fstab which appears completely useless:

/dev/sr0 /media/dvd auto utf8,user,noauto,exec 0 0

Fedora Hardware :: Can't Write To Flash Memory. Automatically Set As Read-only

Jan 21, 2010

I used to be able to write to my SD memory card but just recently it is being automatically mounted as read-only. I checked the read-only tab and tried to set it to the lock position, and to the unlock position. Neither position makes a difference. It was working normally a few days ago. I also tried changing the permission using su

ls -lt gives the following result
drwxr-xr-x 4 col root 16384 1970-01-01 01:00 CANON_DC
chmod chgrp and chown in su mode don't change anything either.

I tried mounting a different 1GB SD card and it works perfectly. I noticed that when I mount this card I get a window asking me what I want to do, but I don't get this on the other card. It must some kind of setting related to the unwriteable card.

I am using F10

Hardware :: PCMCIA Linear Flash - Read And Write To The Card

Mar 4, 2011

The card in question is a PC Card (PCMCIA) 16Bit Intel Series 2 Flash Memory Card (2MB) and I want to be able to read from and write to the card. I've rebuilt latest stable kernel ( with all the PCMCIA options turned on or built as modules. I've got an SRAM card, a CompactFlash Card (in a CF to PC-Card adapter) and the Linear Flash card to try, the SRAM card I'm not expecting greatness from, but hoping to prove that the slot works (it registers, but doesn't get much reported from lspcmcia). The CF card in the adapter works. I'm expecting to see a block device in /dev but nothing appears lspci:

Ubuntu :: Hard Drive Set As Read Only?

Jan 19, 2010

I set up a server using ubuntu 9.10, with two hard drives in a hardware Raid 1 setup and with two more drives for recurring backups. The problem is that the two drives for backup are set to read only and won't allow me to change the permissions even when logged in as root. I have tried putting "rw" into the "fstab" file with no luck, I have also tried running "gksudo nautilus" and "fsck -r /dev/sdc" but still have the same message that I don't have the necessary permissions to complete the task.

**I just tried erasing the data on the disk and creating a new partition, the disk utility allowed me to erase the data and create FAT32 partitions with the same permission problems but would not allow an EXT partition or NTFS partition (it would give and error message stating:"Error creating file system: helper exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:mke2fs 1.41.9 (22-Aug-2009)")**

***I fixed the problem by fixing a formating problem in fstab and reformatting the drives to ext4.(the fstab had a problem with the way that I broke up the lines when I input the info for the new drives, and I didn't realize it until I maximized the window in gedit.)***

Ubuntu :: USB Drive Appears As Read-only

Mar 6, 2010

I have a Coby MP3 player which functions as a USB drive. It has always worked fine, both on Ubuntu Karmic and on the Windows (booted from another disk).

Now, in Ubuntu, it appears as read-only (but it works fine when I boot into Windows on the same machine). How can I deal with this? It's not a matter of my fstab, which I have never manually edited; the USB device is always auto-detected.

Ubuntu :: Burn DVD With A Read Only Drive?

May 3, 2010

Since I started using Linux I've learned that almost anything is possible with a little tweaking, so I was just wondering that if I have a CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive on my laptop, is there any way to make it write to a DVD instead of just reading it? I know it's a long shot, but since the drive can write to a CD, I don't see a reason why it couldn't write to a DVD somehow.

Ubuntu :: CD-RW Drive Defined As Read Only?

Jun 22, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed on an Armada laptop with a Teac CD-W24E installed. This drive can handle cd, cd-r and cd-rw, however the cd/dvd writer and hence Brasero detects it as read only. So no possibility to write!! Also, when I load a blank disk the cd drive icon disapears from the file browser page . The disk utility program detects the loaded empty disk, but can not format it (read only) With F3b I can write to the drive, but only once (takes up the total disc), no multiple sessions. So where does F3b gets its drive definition from? My question is, is this read only forced by the kernel, or is there a file that i can edit in order to make it read/write and usable by Brasero? I prefer Brasero, because with the latest update it now allows easely multisession while I can stil not achieve it with K3b

Ubuntu :: Cannot Read USB Portable Drive

Jan 7, 2011

I removed my old 160Gb laptop drive to install a new 320Gb drive. The 160Gb drive is partitioned as follows: 20Gb unallocated partition, 115Gb ext3 partition (running ubuntu 10.04), and 5Gb swap.

I placed this drive in a portable enclosure so that I could retrieve data from it. The Disk Utility in Ubuntu recognizes the drive but the partitions are not recognized, shows unknown and the only option available is to format the volume. If I place the drive back into my laptop, the drive boots normally and data is accessible.

I have connected other portable USB drives and they work (NTFS formatted), so USB ports are not the problem.
