I was messing around on my laptop which running WattOS, which is a remaster of Ubuntu in case you haven’t heard of it.
I plugged in my usb stick and I wanted to format it and I used GParted and I noticed in the list there was ext3 so I thought i would give it a try I normally use Fat-something.
I formatted the stick but then upon trying to mount it within PCMan file manager I get "Unable to mount device: The enclosing drive for the volume is locked" I unplugged and replugged the Stick but same thing, and then I formatted as fat32 but still nothing.
I decided to plug it into my windows machine and it came up "Do you wish to format etc". I allowed it to and then i could open it in windows fine but back to Linux and same old thing "Unable to mount device: The enclosing drive for the volume is locked".
I can mount the drive manually and unmount it manually and create files on it via the shell but graphically i cannot mount, unmount or create any files or drag and drop onto it. I just tried another USB stick and same problem and I havent formatted or played with the other one.
Can anyone help me please?
