comment How do I remove a Read-only file system from a usb drive
@ennuikiller - that is what I ultimately had to do. I was trying to see if there was a more subtle or elegant way of doing it in an effort to better understand what was going on. In the end that was all that worked though.

@boehj - seriously! I am glad I didn't have anything else on that USB so I could just go with the nuclear option.

thanks for the suggestion. Mounting as rw alone doesn't work - it looks like I may have to go with your second suggestion to just remake the file system.

thanks for the suggestion. It appeared to remount as rw but it still didn't allow me to remove it... even with rm -f as root.

thanks for the suggestion. I think I intentionally purged the idea of running rm -f as root from my brain for my own good but unfortunately it didn't work it still gives me the Read-only file system error
