It`s been my very first day of using ubuntu 12.10 version in my lappy. As a newbie in ubuntu, i am facing a problem regarding about transferring any files into my drives except the home. Wehenever i am trying to copying or moving any files then it is giving me an error which is "There was an error copying files into /media/null/403ed6ac-29d8-4f0a-b8c7-d7e822023756/name-of-my-file permission denied". Even whenever i am copying a file and then trying to pasting it in a local drive then it is not showing me the paste option on right clock too. I have three drives one is for home, other both are having a space of 150gb each and i gave it as an ext4 file mode. I had installed the Ubuntu 12.10 OS by deleting all of my previous partitions and then re-created the partitions again. I gave the others two drive in ext4 options. So please can anyone tell me how to solve this problem. Please help me..:) Thank you Please Note: I can able to copying my files into home or in desktop but not in the other two drives...

Solved.Okays So finally i`ve founded the solution of it.. What i have done is first of all i went to gparted software and then unmounted both of my other two drives . after that i had chnaged their format by selecting them into ntfs format. By doing that now i can able to copying and moving my files into it..:)))) –  A Nerd Dec 16 '12 at 6:25
The real problem was that you didn't own the filesystems for some reason. You can change ownership ("chown") or it might indicate a more serious problem where drives are not being mounted with any user access at all. –  fabricator4 Dec 16 '12 at 7:39
Hmm indeed, but now everything has been going smooth..:) –  A Nerd Dec 16 '12 at 7:40
