Someone on the Raspberry Pi Forums said: uid= and gid= are not valid mount options for ext2. ext2 (like ext4 which I'd use) has full, native support for linux owner, group, and permissions so you cannont change them at mount time via mount options. * Use the PC to reformat to ext4 (I did ext2) * Mount the partition on the PC * sudo chmod 777 /path/to/mountpoint so permissions on it are fully open to all users. Unmount and unplug it. Connect it to the Pi and Mount with: *sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/usb/ That worked. :-) Thanks to all who offered suggestions. -- Terry Coles -- Next meeting: Online, Jitsi, Tuesday, 2021-12-07 20:00 Check to whom you are replying Meetings, mailing list, IRC, ... http://dorset.lug.org.uk New thread, don't hijack: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
