I have burned the ubuntu iso distribution on my flash drive and I boot into ubuntu from the flash USB drive. Note that I am using the option 'Try without installing ubuntu' while booting.
The problem is if I try to use any other usb device all the file system on that usb device appears read only to the default
ubuntu user as well as for the
root. The volume appears as read-only.
Next, I tried to remount the usb device and make it rw using
sudo mount -o rw,ubuntu /dev/src1 /media/<mount-device-name>
While the command seems to succeed and I get no errors, the device doesnt become read-write. The mount entries in fstab still show the device as read-only.
Any suggestions as what is going wrong?
