My PC runs on Ubuntu 12.04 operating system. When I connect my Nokia Asha 501 on USB mass storage mode, all the files and folders appear as write protected. I can view the contents of my micro SD card, but I cannot change the attributes of the folder too. Help me find a way to write files on my micro SD.

Any USB or Serial micro-controllers that you will plug-in your PC will be usually set as read-only by default while you're using Ubuntu OS. You can try to change the USB permissions by typing in this command : sudo chmod 666 /dev/ttyUSB0. This should change the permission of your connected Nokia flash memory to be writable, you can check if the permissions have been changed by using this command : ls -al /dev/ttyUSB0.
