HI, I am having a small problem. I am using a USB2 160GB LACIE External HDD, formatted as a primary FAT32 partition ... Whenever the Disk is connected, an Unmounted icon is placed on the desktop ... I can click on it and it mounts just fine. Unfortunately I cannot write to it. Checked the permissions and I should be able to write to it but it still denies me write access. Ideally I would like to just put the entry for this disk into my /etc/fstab file. And I have done so with a command as such :
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/LACIE vfat 0 0 (I think thats what I put) I have even tried it with fmask=775,dmask=775
but it still wont let me write. Also when I have mounted sdb1 to /mnt/LACIE the automated USB icon gets confused because it wants to mount the device sdb1 to /media/sdb1.
I am using Kubuntu (latest) with KDE 3.4
any help would be most appreciated
