To copy an
iso to a USB drive, see install/usb
Read only USB:
sudo -i df -Th umount /media/patrick/KINGSTON dosfsck -a /dev/sdc1
To list usb devices on a system:
To find which
/dev/ they are on, run the Gnome Disks application
For FAT and FAT32 devices:
sudo apt-get install mtools
Mount the drive and then:
# find out the device location of you pen drive. # Find the line which goes like ``/dev/sdc1 on /media/disk...`` # This means the device ``sdc1`` - the drive mounted on ``/media/disk``. # unmount the device. sudo umount /media/disk # label the device sudo mlabel -i /dev/sdc1 ::<new_label>
If you get a message like:
Total number of sectors (7831520) not a multiple of sectors per track (63)!
You can easily ignore the check by running this command:
echo mtools_skip_check=1 >> ~/.mtoolsrc
Try again and it should work.
