I am having trouble while saving valuable pdf files to my 16GB SDcard. I can save just fine on my system hard drive, but every time I try to move it to the SD card or save it straight to there, it gives me a insufficient permissions message at the bottom of my screen.

I'd like to have these files on the SD card for so I can move them from system to system.

  • Can you take a screenshot of the message? And the output of sudo mount while the card is plugged. – Braiam Nov 7 '13 at 12:38

Go to the equivalent of media\yourusername and right click onto the sd card and open properties, then the permissions tab :


Modify the permissions, and enable the read-write option, that is "Create and Delete Files" on all the user s and user group options
