Mount a PSP as Read-Writable device

This tutorial by Redmistpete explains how to make a Sony PSP automatically mount as a Read-Writable device each time it connects using Ubuntu - this overrides the default "read only" mount permission settings and will allow you to transfer data, game, music picture files to and from your PSP using Ubuntu instead of Windows ;)

Creating a Re/Writable automount

1- open a terminal
2- type: sudo mkdir /media/usb
3- enter your root password, press return
4- type: sudo gedit /etc/fstab
5- press return
6- add the following on a new line of text:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usb auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
7- save and then exit

From now on, when you plug in the PSP, turn on and switch to USB mode it will automatically mount as Read/Writable and will automatically unmount when you disconnect the PSP!
