I have this HP USB 32 GB glash drive. When I insert this drive into my Mac via an adapter, I can’t copy any files into this.
This is the info from ‘Disk Utility’:
This is the ‘Get info’ popup:
However I get this error when trying to copy a file:
❯ cp ~/Downloads/INV-000068.pdf /Volumes/HANSOLO/ cp: /Volumes/HANSOLO/INV-000068.pdf: Read-only file system ❯ mkdir -p /Volumes/HANSOLO/hello mkdir: /Volumes/HANSOLO/hello: Read-only file system
Although the ‘Get Info’ popup says, it is ‘Read & Write’ for my user id, the copy fails with the above error. Also copying via Finder doesn’t work (it shows the disabled mouse icon when dragging a file into this volume and no ‘Paste’ option in the right click menu).
I have already tried a few approaches such as editing
/etc/fstab as per How to always mount a usb stick as read/write but it doesn’t have any effect.
