I did this and something similar just after I wrote. It now reads the drive but will not write to it?
What filesystem is it using. What's the output from "ls -l /dev/foo", where "/dev/foo" is the partition you're mounting....
Sorry Thomas, I had to get some sleep at 11.30 :) The disk has some fat stuff on it I assume as they have been using it at school and I can read this. However, the -l command does not reveal the fs as far as I can see: krell4:~ # ls -l /dev/sda1 brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 1 2004-04-06 14:27 /dev/sda1
