I recently formatted a hard drive as ext3 to get it to mount in CentOS 5. Now it automatically mounts when I connect it to the USB port, and mounts to /media/disk, but i am not able to write to it.
here is the output of my mount command:
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 on / type ext3 (rw,acl,usrquota,grpquota) proc on /proc type proc (rw) sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw) devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620) /dev/sdc1 on /boot type ext3 (rw) tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw) /dev/mapper/vg_epa1-lv_root on /lv_root type ext4 (rw,acl) none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw) sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw) epa2:/shares/epa2 on /shares/epa2 type nfs (rw,acl,hard,intr,addr=172.31.10.19) nemo:/shares/nemo on /shares/nemo type nfs (rw,acl,hard,intr,addr=172.31.10.20) nfsd on /proc/fs/nfsd type nfsd (rw) /dev/sde1 on /media/disk type ext3 (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
The last one is my external drive. it is showing as rw, so how come I cant put files on it?
