    sudo chown username /media/sda6
    Then, the command you tried above will work just fine.
    AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHAA!
    I would never have thought of that as I have access to those.

    But I know better now. Thanks p_quarles
    Another point to files away in my ever growing tips and tricks.

    Yea, like the first line of my sig has said since day one of being here.

    If is wasn't for the [Search] Button, there'd probably be a hundred more questions from me.

    Thanks again

    I should have looked at this a little close too.

    I'm going to file this away as well, and "test" it some time.

    Thanks for the tip.
