This question already has an answer here:
Using GParted, I have formatted an external HDD to ext4.
As it turns out the default is that I have no write access.
How can I change permissions on external drives?

It is possible that you may have formatted the drive with root privileges.
If so see link below for some possible solutions.
Hope it helps.
