Hi,

IO can;t seem to write to my fat32 drive.

Here is my fstab

 

/dev/hda6 / reiserfs notail 1 1

none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0

/dev/hdd2 /mnt/LinuxStuff ext3 defaults 1 2

/dev/hdd1 /mnt/Movies vfat umask=000,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850 0 0

/dev/hdb5 /mnt/OtherStuff ntfs umask=0,nls=iso8859-15,ro 0 0

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/WindowsApps ntfs umask=0022 0 0

/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec,users 0 0

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs umask=0,nls=iso8859-15,ro 0 0

Have You ever used "kget" to download and save the downloads on a FAT32 partition?

If -"Yes" try this:

 

mv ~/.kde/share/apps/kget ~/.kde/share/apps/kget_old

then "umount" and "mount", or just "remount" :)

 

This worked for me!

you must add "user" or "users" to the options so that a user can mount or unmount it:

 

/dev/hdd1 /mnt/Movies vfat users,umask=000,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850 0 0

 

adding "noauto" is also recommended, since if it gets mounted at boot by root, only root can write to it, so mounting it as a user is better. you can also type as root in console "chmod 777 /mnt/Movies" so that everyone can write to the folder.
