    Simple.
    First unmount the drives
    sudo umount /media/drive_name

    Then remount then again
    mount /media/drive_name

    If you mount without sudo, it would work.
    If it is not allowing mounting without sudo then use
    sudo mount /media/drive_name
    then use
    sudo chown 777 /media/drive_name

    This will give u read, write and execute permissions.

    Thank you.
