Note: I know about the lock switch on the SD card. It's not the lock switch. :)
Hi, I'm having problems with an FAT32 SD card taken out of a Wii. It's read only. Any attempt to copy something is met with...
The destination is read-only.
I've tried reformatting with gParted and also these threads...
leke@Aspire:~$ sudo fdisk -l ... Disk /dev/sdb: 128 MB, 128450560 bytes 141 heads, 61 sectors/track, 29 cylinders, total 250880 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x00002fa9 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdb1 2048 249855 123904 b W95 FAT32 leke@Aspire:~$ sudo ls -l /dev/sdb brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 16 marra 15 09:28 /dev/sdb leke@Aspire:~$ sudo usermod -G disk --append leke leke@Aspire:~$ groups leke leke : leke adm disk cdrom sudo dip plugdev lpadmin sambashare
From here, I tried...
with no luck, but when I got to
sudo mount --options remount,rw <the SDHC drive, /dev/sdb for example, find it using fdisk -l>
I got me an error message...
leke@Aspire:~$ sudo mount --options remount,rw /dev/sdb mount: can't find /dev/sdb in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
So this is good I think, but what does it mean?
So there has been a development. It appears the SD card reader is the problem. I tried another SD card in the same slot and it had the same problem, but this time it was a micro SD inside a full size SD adapter, so I took the micro sd out and put it in a usb adapter and it wrote fine. So it's not the card itself (I believe).
However, my bios has no setting to change any properties of the SD card reader.
So is this fixable?
Edit 2: So did any of what I tried require a reboot (like adding user to the disk group)? ---because It seems to work fine now. For the record, I still get the same error message for the mount attempt given by The Coder Guy after changing to /dev/sdb1 but I guess it's not so important now. How should I mark this post as resolved now?
