No write permissions USB drive BackTrack 3
I'm using BackTrack 3 via VMWare Workstation ACE edition under Windows 7. It is running fine, I did a manual install and it runs very well from the virtual disk, no longer using the .iso file. it saves my data to the virtual disk, etc, and maintains my changes after I reboot the VM. My question is, I have a USB Flash Drive that I am able to access and copy files from, but I can not copy files to it. It gives the error "you can not drop any items in a directory in which you do not have permission". I've tried to chmod the sdb1 folder, tried chown root sdb1 etc, and I get errors saying Unable to change permissions. Read only file system. How can I get this fixed? I've looked through the forum first for answers, but none have helped me resolve it. All I really want to do is figure out how I can have read/write permissions so I can copy files from the BackTrack 3 VM onto my flash drive and open them in Windows. If nothing else, can I mount my Windows partition so that I can copy the files I need directly? I need to get files from the backtrack into windows either via the usb drive or windows 7 drive
Any help is greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance....
