    San Disk

    I have a San Disk Compact Flash card reader. When I logged in as root, it showed up and I was able to read my digital pics off of it. But when I sign in not as root, I dont see it...is there a way to get to it?

    Probably just going to be a permission problem. I will have to look at the docs and see how the San disks are accessed first before I can tell you how to change them.

    Ok, without being logged in as root, I can see it as file/media/sda1, but I cant get to the pics on it, like I can when I am root. I just see a file called u with a ? before and after it

    Post a copy of your /etc/fstab. I am still trying to figure out how the san disk is mounted. Aparently most of them just are formatted using a DOS(FAT16) filesystem.

    Ok, here it is. By the way, what is the fstab?

    /dev/cdrom/media/cdromautoro,noauto,user,exec 0 0

    It contains information about all of the your filesystems. The information is used to tell the kernel what options to use when mounting them. If you want more information: man fstab

    /dev/sda1 /media/sda1 auto noauto,user,exec 0 0 #HOTPLUG 4t_9.GdvU0fSB2R0
    Hmmm, that line should allow any user that mounts the san disk the ability to read and write to it. If you mount the disk as root then switch to a regular user you will not be able to read or write it. Have you tried mounting the disk as a regular user?
