Re: USB Memory stick (more info)

A few days ago I copied some files to a USB Memory stick. No problem. Now I'm needing to copy some more files to the same memory stick and it's telling me it's a read-only file system. I had zero problems with this the other day.

mount is as follows:
/dev/sda1 on /media/USB-DISK type vfat (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,noatime,uid=500,utf8,shortname=lower)

It should be writeable.

Thanks for any pointers.

A quick look at the logs shows apparently problems with the drive. Do I need to reformat it or what? It still has the default WinBlows setup on it.
