Ok so when I do sudo fdisk -l, I get this:

Disco /dev/sda: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes
255 cabezas, 63 sectores/pista, 121601 cilindros, 1953525168 sectores en total
Unidades = sectores de 1 * 512 = 512 bytes

La partición 1 no se inició en el limite físico del sector

# This is the USB

Then, I do

 sudo chmod 777 /dev/sdb

But I still get the error that says that the USB drive is "Read Only".

Edit

When I do mount I get this:

/dev/sdb1 on /media/alejandro/Gladiador type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,default_permissions,blksize=4096)

  • What is the output of mount with the USB stick in?

Please check the permissions of the /media/$your_user_name folder.

It should be owned by you and your user should have all permissions (Read, Write, eXecute).

sudo chown $USER:$USER /media/$USER
sudo chmod u+rwx /media/$USER

Also check the permissions on the folder of the mountpoint (Gladiador in your case).

I could not find an existing answer, but I think this was a common issue in 14.04 with some permissions missing in /media.
