I am having trouble getting my second SSD to work with Linux. I recently switched from Windows to Ubuntu 14.04 and I am still learning Linux. I can see my second drive under Devices in the File Manager, but it is stuck as read-only. If I right click, go to Properties, then Permissions, all the options are greyed out. I tried searching for information and found a few posts about mounting drives. I tried adding this line to fstab,

UUID="502fd123-7748-463c-9155-ad5744a4804b"  /media/Calvin  ext4  defaults,windows_names,locale=en_CA.utf8  0 0

but that doesn't help. I ran fdisk -l and got this output;

Disk /dev/sda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14593 cylinders, total 234441648 sectors

/dev/sdb5            4096   468860927   234428416   83  Linux

The output of mount | grep /dev/sdb is;

/dev/sdb5 on /media/calvin/Storage type ext4 (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks2)

Any help would be greatly appreciated. If there is any other information I should have provided please let me know and I will add it as soon as I am able.

Can you add the output of mount | grep /dev/sdb? –  TheSchwa Aug 10 at 23:05
