Recently I bought a FOXCONN AT-5250 barebones computer that I loaded with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with the purpose of using it as a Plex Media Server computer. After I got Plex up and running it worked great to stream the few movies I loaded onto the 60 GB SSD in the FOXCONN to my phone and tablet.
My next step was to add an external drive so I can load it up with tons of movies and TV shows. I used a 1 TB LaCie Hitachi HDS721010CLA332 hard drive originally formatted on my macbook pro using Mac OS Extended (Journaled). I plugged it into the FOXCONN and it mounted but I was unable to transfer the video files to the external drive and received the message: Error while copying to "Media" The destination is read-only. I used gparted and diskutility to reformat, erase, create new partitions, etc, so many times to see if anything would change
I have gone slightly crazy going through all the advice I have found through google and this site. I checked the permissions on the drive and the "Media" drive is set to drwxrwxrwx, which should give me full permission to add or delete files. I still get the error message when I try.
When I go into the Permissions tab under "Media" properties it is clear that I am the owner. Folder access: Create and delete files. File access: it won't let me change it to read and write. Someone please help this crazy n00b.
