  1. When I write an ISO to a USB-stick using dd or any other usb-burn software, I always end up with a Read-Only File System. I tried mount -o remount,rw but that doesn't seem do to the job. Funny thing is that using Rufus on Windows presents me with a read/write USB-stick. Is there a hidden option for dd that returns a read/write USB-stick, or another way to have a read/write disk Txs
  2. I have a wonderful Patriot 16GB USB 3.0 drive that suddenly decided to puke on me. It was not working right on any type of computer; corrupted data and read only. You could see nothing even if it was viewable. And you couldn't even reformat it because EVERYTHING including Linux thought it was read only. I did some searching around and the first result in a Google search had the answer: Patriot Axle 16gb, "write protected" "corrupt" In that topic on the Patriot Forums, this is the thing that worked for me: Thanks you Patriot Forums' Patriot_Ben! Would have hated to lose that wonderful 16GB Drive! So far so good. I have reformatted it three times and am in the process of copying all the stuff I had on it before. I just hope it does not mean that the chip is starting to fail....
  3. So I installed LMC to a usb. Did some tweaking and installed stellarium, everything was ok, reboots worked. Then I thought maybe me mate does not want auto login. Big mistake. I used the configuration program from LMC and unchecked the "auto login" boxes. Now I can not start LMC. Everything seems to work up to a point. I get some writing on a black screen, get the MINT logo and then some more writting. Up to this point this is as normal. Then the writing stops and tells me the system can not find this that or the other and drops me into a "init shell?" Which seems to be some sort of rescue (?) shell. I can type in "help" and get a list of commands I can use but have no idea how to use them. There is no shutdown or reboot option so I have to kill from the wall switch. Can anyone tell me what to do to save this install ? I could reinstall but have made quite a few changes and it is probably easier to save than reinstall. :'(
  4. I have a Windows 7 (64 bit) Dell Inspiron One infected with the "FBI lock screen virus (REloadit Pack Scam)" I'm unable to boot into Safe Mode. When I hold F12 on boot up I get the following boot options: - Hard Disk - DVD/CD drive - Diagnostics - BIOS Setup None of those help me. (The "Diagnostics" option results in the Dell "ePSA Pre-boot System Assessment" which simply checks all the hardware (cables, OS Boot Path, drives, video card, CPU fan, processor and memory) with no outlet to a Command Prompt or anything . . . so useless.) So the problem via this method is getting to the desktop which I can not due. I ran Windows Defender Offline on the infected machine. It found 7 problems but not the ones related to the FBI ransomware because upon reboot the same situation existed. My safe machine is my Windows 7 (32 bit) laptop. Next I found HitMan Pro Malware Removal tool which specifically mentions the FBI ransomware. My problem now is how do I make a USB stick for the 64 bit infected machine from my 32 bit safe machine? (This is my actual question) Any other ideas on how to get this bugger out? Thanks, Steve
  5. OK, For some reason, I seem to have issues with USB hubs. The last one I had was a Belkin 7-port model that seemed to overheat after a year of moderate use. My MacBook Air has USB 3.0 on it, and I want to maximize on that capability. I am also willing to pay a bit more for a high quality hub. I will have a variety of devices hooked up to this hub. - USB mixer that is the primary audio for the Mac - Secondary USB audio device. Used for Skype, etc. (Need two devices to record and talk at the same time.) - HP Printer/Scanner Here are the things I am looking for in a hub: - USB 3.0 on all ports - Most of the ports on the rear. One or two on the front is fine. - Ports aligned vertically, if possible - Indicator lights! Ideally, device present and activity indicators - Plenty of Amps to power things and charge my iPad Does anyone know of anything off the top of their heads? Adam This one looks good- http://www.amazon.com/Oct-2012-Upgraded-Version-Compatible/dp/B006TT91TW/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=1357411330&sr=8-13&keywords=usb+hub Except all the ports are in the front.
