    Can you check whether the folder /media/jeffrey exists and what the permissions are?

    Thanks again 2F4U.
    I spent a couple of hours searching for this answer but obviously I am not using the right keywords.
    I pasted 'sudo mkdir /media/${USER}' into terminal and Bingo everything seems fine. You're a diamond!!!
