Problem writing to USB backup drive

Post by Thurston0101 »

I can access and write files on the eMMC card w my operating system and even the spare 'drive' I have on the SD card but I cannot write (though I can read and execute the files) on my Transcend backup hard drive (makes it difficult to do backups)

I use ls -l and I saw the permissions were wrong so I used chmod 777 /media/odroid/TRANSCEND -R and it reset permissions for every file and folder (took a while)

afterwards the ls -l showed the permissions were indeed drwxrwxrwx so it should be able to be written to, yet when I try to copy a file there or create a file or folder there it gives me an error of permission denied.

What did I miss?

Let us know which OS image runs on your board. Also check the file system in your USB storage.
Do you use the C1?
