I have a special bespoke device with a USB interface. When plugging in the device to my laptop - Ubuntu 12.04 it mounts as a read only USB drive - with a file on it. This file is created by the device and writes to the file when the device scans stuff.
I however, want to be able to write to the drive so the device 'thinks' it has already scanned x amount of entries.
Basically I want to replace the file 'File1.txt' my version of 'File1.txt' however I cannot because the drive is mounting as Read only.
I have tried the following commands:
andy@andy-ThinkPad-W530:/media/iRead$ touch giveme.txt touch: cannot touch `giveme.txt': Read-only file system andy@andy-ThinkPad-W530:/media/iRead$ sudo mount -o remount,rw '/media/iRead' [sudo] password for andy: mount: cannot remount block device /dev/sdb read-write, is write-protected andy@andy-ThinkPad-W530:/media/iRead$
Can anybody suggest anything I can try to mount this as writable drive?
I have a very strong feeling that the chip which is storing this data is the following:
ARM STM32F103 RBT6 22oUP _ 93 MLT22950
Hope this helps somebody to help me!
