I work extensively on both Windows 7 and Ubuntu and use a USB pen drive to transfer data, Python files, etc. between these OSs. Recently my USB pen drive has been giving me 'read-only' errors such as
Error while creating directory Untitled Folder. There was an error creating directory in /media/TSB USB DRV Error creating directory: Read-only file system
My question is: Is there a way to avoid this problem in the future? I know that whenever I stick the USB into a Windows PC, I have the option of checking for errors, so is this procedure sufficient?
