Fra wrote: question -how do you mount it?- ... I plug the usb cable into my pc and so it is mounted. Right? I don't know what is the filemanager either. If you can explain it better I will be able to manage the problem though. Thanks.

Plug in the drive and when its mounted open a terminal and type.
- Code: Select all
This will open your filemangager with root priviligies. Now navigate in the filesystem to a directory called media. The directory inside media should be your harddrives mountpoint. Rightclick on it, properties, permissionstab, change owner and group to your username. Close the filemanager and try to open your harddrive and see if you can write to it now.
