Linux - Fedora and Android make read-only file system.

I don't know what is the problem with Linux - Fedora and Android OS.
After I put my USB cable seam Fedora make from write disk to read-only.
Maybe the Android when scan the device set to read-only.
So you can get some error like this when you use the chown command:
chown: changing ownership of ...: Read-only file system
That can be one big problem when you want to copy files on your tablet.
I found a solution, just use remount.
# mount -o rw,remount /media/disk
If you want to make read-only, use:
# mount -o ro,remount /media/disk
That will solve this issue.

Thanks for the solution. I took the liberty to translate it to French on my blog. Of course, I gave you credit.
