    Flash Drives mount as Read Only

    Let me start off by letting you know that earlier this week I upgraded to Xubuntu 13.04 from Xubuntu 12.10 (both 32bit).

    I have a Patriot flash drive that automatically mounts to /media/tom/patriot Whenever I copy files to the flash drive though the GUI I get an error saying that the destination is read only.

    The interesting part about this problem is that I am still able to copy files to the flash drive using the cp command.

    Try to check if you have access enabled for external storage under:
    Setting Manager -> Users and Groups -> <your_username> -> Advanced Settings -> Access external storage devices automatically
    and maybe even
    Setting Manager -> Users and Groups -> <your_username> -> Advanced Settings -> Mount user-space filesistem (FUSE)

    Thanks for the reply. I double checked those setting and I was able to copy files to the flash drive without any problems.
