I have an Ubuntu 14.04 based Media Center and I store the media files on a USB HDD. I add files to drive directly on a Mac so I have it formatted as FAT32.
The problem is that after reconnecting the drive to the Ubuntu, it mounts at
/media/user/drivename and only the root user is allowed access. I need several applications to have full access to this drive. I can change file permissions in the terminal but it doesn't change because of the
/media/user location. I am able to manually
sudo mount /dev/sdc1 /media/drivename &
sudo chmod 777 /media/drivename but the mount point changes each time.
Is there a way to make this drive always mount where root and other applications have access?
