View Full Version : [kubuntu] error with USB flash devices

August 18th, 2009, 10:52 AM
Good morning,

I bought a USB flash memory (Kingston) and it worked fine with my Ubuntu, then I had to copy some files into a computer using a Windows system and another using a Mac

Since then my system can read what is on the USB but refuses both copying and deleting files from the USB device.

I have formatted it and it seemed to work fine until I copied files from my computer to a windows one...

I thought it might be a problem of the device but today I had the same problem with a Sony Vaio USB I was using for several days until (again) I tried to open it on a windows computer (sorry but they are everywhere!!!) and now I can only read the files written on it but perform no other action (I have clicked on properties and checked, apparently I have full access to all the files)

Any idea of what could be the cause?
Thank you in advance anyway
