Hey Guys, I'm a complete newbie and stuck on this one. I'm using a 4GB flash drive to boot Slacko 5.5. The drive comes up as "sdc1". When I click on it, I can view the files and copy stuff in and out but I can't mount the drive.

Also in mount option sdc1 is displayed with a lock icon. I understand this is the drive where the OS is loaded from and saved to but I was able to do it a few days back.

Please help. Question

If you see the files the drive is mounted.

If gparted has a lock on the drive, it is mounted.
