Hi, I am trying to modify content on sd card write a file to it. But i keep getting the error message

Could not write to /media/disk/..
I then tried

natman@natman-laptop:~$ sudo chmod 775 /media/disk
chmod: changing permissions of `/media/disk': Read-only file system
natman@natman-laptop:~$

That did nothing for me, the i tried using the little lock on the SD card both ways - no difference. If it means anything im using KDE3.5.9

At a terminal:

sudo mkdir /media/disk
sudo mount -t /dev/mmcblk0p /media/disk
gksudo dolphinBut first, do
sudo fdisk -l (Doesn't always need sudo)
And check your MMC's device link and replace /dev/mmcblk0p with that one.
Plus work only with the root dolphin window while writing to the MMC card.

If you find the "settings" media like that (used to be STORAGE tab for "removable drives and media" or whatever that app is called) in 8.04, let me know where it is.

I have a thread about asking for it, but no answers.

Did you follow the exact procedure? And remember using dolphin as root for writing on the MMC..

Have you checked your card's integrity? Backup its data and format it using gparted. Then try again.
