Fixed: USB Drive Read Only in Ubuntu 13.04

Problem : USB disk/storage devices are auto loaded as Read Only in Ubuntu. When attempting write operation it gives the message like “Read only file system…”.

Reason: Unknown, looks like a bug in the usb disk handling in Ubuntu.

Fix: Run this command to remount as writable disk –

sudo mount -o remount,rw /media/<username>/<diskname>

(Pressing tab after /media/<username>/ can help you find the  disk to be provided.)
