Double check that you are accessing the correct device. USB drives
do not always get "assigned" the same device. (It might get assigned

the reasons for this, it should probably be a separate thread...

Oh yes, my processor is slow now. a df command shows this:
[root localhost trade]# df

The JetFlash pen is assigned to sdf1. But do I have to assign it to sdc1
for it to work??
What consequences does this have?

Nope - but you have to use /dev/sdf instead of /dev/sdc if you want
fdisk to tell you anything about the drive. This is why you were
getting the unable to open /dev/sdc error message from fdisk.

Of course!
And this is what now comes out of the woodwork:
fdisk /dev/sdf1 -l
Disk /dev/sdf1: 4089 MB, 4089428992 bytes
126 heads, 62 sectors/track, 1022 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 7812 * 512 = 3999744 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x69737369

This doesn't look like a partition table
Probably you selected the wrong device.

/dev/sdf1 is a partition.  /dev/sdf is the device.  Try:

    # fdisk -l /dev/sdf

(that's "dash ell", by the way).  That should show you the partition
table on drive /dev/sdf.
Sorry,  my mistake. I don't do these things too often.

[root localhost par]# /sbin/fdisk -l /dev/sdf

Disk /dev/sdf: 4089 MB, 4089445376 bytes
33 heads, 63 sectors/track, 3841 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2079 * 512 = 1064448 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x7ef87cc2

  Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdf1               1        3842     3993583    b  W95 FAT32

But I cannot see any message here that points out what goes wrong -
why it is set to readonly.

There's nothing wrong with the partition from what I can see.

I'm afraid I've purged the previous messsages in this thread (stupid, I
know), but I do have a few questions.  I'm sure you've answered them
before, but I don't have the data handy.  Bear with me.

1. When you plug the device in, does it automount?

2. If it does automount, run "mount" as root and post the line
regarding that device.  It should start with "/dev/sdf1".

3. The system should mount it somewhere in the /media directory.
If it does, did the system choose the mountpoint name or did you
create a directory that it mounts as?

I can try to help you off-list if you wish.
