Micro Sd Read Only In Linux


Recommended Posts

I'm running the latest Ubuntu distro and am having a problem with a micro SD card.

Its an 8gig card I use for my DSlite. I use it in a cycloDS card.

I plugged it into a windows system and there was no problem at all, but when I plugged it into my laptop it was read only.

I did some googling and none of the solutions i found fixed anything. So here is a short list of what I've tried.

There is no lock switch on the card.

There is no lock switch on the adapter.

The card did not have one of those breakable tabs to begin with.

"sudo mount -o remount,rw /media/[card]" returned an error.

The error returned was not "No such location" or anything similar to that (dont remember what it was and dont have the card atm)

If you have any idea why it is showing up as read only please let me know. Ive got gigs of media to transfer and my external HD is slow and i dont want to have to transfer it to the hd and then to a windows system.
