Yeah like it says i have it mounted but i cant Write to it i have it setup in fstab as this
/dev/sda1 /mnt/cardreader vfat rw,noauto,users 0 0

Any ideas?

Add the option umask=000 to the fstab entry for read / write.

Nope didnt fix it

With the drive unmounted make sure the permissions for /mnt/cardreader are set for read/write.
Then remount the drive.

BTW is this as a regular user or as root?

Ok lets try this all over again

/dev/sda1 /mnt/cardreader vfat rw,noauto,umask=000,users 0 0

that is what it looks like in my fstab

When i try to mount what is in my fstab i get this

[root@localhost /]# mount -a
mount: mount point 0 does not exist
[root@localhost /]#


i am trying to mount in a user profile

It is difficult to tell if this error is related to the card reader or some other error in the fstab file.
Does the directory /mnt/cardreader exist?

What happens when you try to mount the card reader?
mount /mnt/cardreader

Might want to post the rest of the fstab file.
