I made a live bootable Fedora-13 on Buffalo 8G usb stick using Linux command
> dd if=Fedora-13-i686-Live.iso of=/dev/sdb1
It was successful apart from no longer able to copy any file on it.
The live Fedora only occupied 700M while the media is 8G.
I got the following message when trying to copy a file on it, even if
with the root privilege.
> cp mag01.doc /media/Fedora-13-i686-Live/
cp: cannot create regular file `/media/Fedora-13-i686-Live/mag01.doc':
Read-only file system
I removed any existing partition using /sbin/fdisk and reformatted
with command line
What I have now is a single partition with only 6.8 Gb free space.
The question, how can I recover the original volume amount, 8G. If
this is related to the file systems (ext3), which one should I choose
so the volume get back to the original.
Thanks for any kind of response.
