I want to back up my Xubuntu install onto an 500GB external HD.
Xubuntu sees it, lets me open files from it, but when I try to write to it it says that it is a read-only filesystem.
I've checked it is mounted, and it says:
so it looks like it should be able to write to it.
/dev/sdg1 on /media/My Book type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,utf8,shortname=winnt,uid=1000)
I have tried acessing it in my XP install and it's fine, i can read and write it easily.
