    Thread moved to Ubuntu +1.

    Please post all support requests for 13.10 in this sub-forum, please. It is not released yet and testing.

    followed your instructions

    ortermagic@ortermagic-Centurion-CPD-1303:~$ sudo umount /mnt
    [sudo] password for ortermagic:
    ortermagic@ortermagic-Centurion-CPD-1303:~$ sudo chmod ugo+x /media/ortermagic
    ortermagic@ortermagic-Centurion-CPD-1303:~$

    I got nothing I looked in media, it was empty

    OK, so you need to mount the pendrive manually with

    Code:
    sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt
    Please do that again, and try to verify that you can see and manage it with the file browser (at /mnt). For example make a file and remove it, or copy some file to or from the pendrive.

    Re: usb flash drive works in 12.04 but not in 13.10

    If I understand correctly, you could mount the drive manually with the mount command (see post #8). That is what I suggest you do again. But it may help to reboot the computer, if things are mixed up right now.

    If it will be mounted, it should be possible to see at /mnt

    So try these commands

    Code:
    df
    Code:
    ls -l /mnt   # ell ess space minus ell space slash emm enn tee
    Please post the output of those commands!

    Sorry to be a bit opaque but I tried to copy into media but I do not seem to have the permissions necessary
    the media folder is empty as is the mnt folder I am still unable to see the pendrive which works in 12.04 flawlessly
    ortermagic@ortermagic-Centurion-CPD-1303:~$ sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt
    [sudo] password for ortermagic:
    mount: /dev/sdb1 already mounted or /mnt busy
    mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdb1 is already mounted on /mnt
    ortermagic@ortermagic-Centurion-CPD-1303:~$
    (how do i access do I sudo? could you possibly write a command line prescription for me please... /mnt using the terminal?)
