    PSP Error: Read-only filesystem

    Hi all!

    I've come across a very weired bug. earlier on today, i was able to move files and folders across to my psp, but now i'm unable to move anything across, getting a Read-only Filesystem error.

    according to mount -v my psp is (rw) so at least it is mounted as read write. the error then suggests to me that somehow the memory card protection has been changed to read only? (i'm doing this through the usb cable btw)

    is anyone able to point me in the right direction?

    thanks for your time,
    zammy

    solved this by reformatting the memory stick duo.

    Reformatting? Youch. I was gonna say to get a card reader and see if the card is somehow locked. But hey, whatever works, eh?

    all data that was on the card was backed up, so i had nothing to lose.

    actually, this problem isn't quite solved yet. i didn't notice this at first, but it must have been the time this problem occured, the /media/disk/ folder is still there (even though device was long unplugged). reinserting the same psp device (and this was before the reformat) created a disk-1. the properties of the card show its pre-reformatted state (ie read-only filesystem) and trying to rm it gives a device busy error.

    can someone help me remove this phantom memory stick please?
