View Full Version : [ubuntu] New external USB Hard Drive

August 20th, 2008, 04:23 PM

I've just got a new usb hd and formatted it with ext3 on ubuntu 8.04. It mounts at startup and I can click into it, but can't write to it. I tried to edit fstab but it wasn't in there. I tried adding the last bit (#/dev/sdf1 etc) but it hasn't worked. what have I done wrong?

Thanks, James.
