well ... what is filesystem of sr? then ... did you check that
filesystem item [M] instead of[*] ??
if you want to use some specific file system you may make sure whether
you checked correspond filesystem by * or not.
I don't know how did you set many objects but I believe that you
already know what this problem causes
