I am trying to access my windows side and usb flash drive. When i look in the media file there it says i don't have permission to view the files. but i can't see anyway of altering permissions. but when i log in as a different user i can access the drives. this doesn't make sense as i used to be able to access from all user accounts?


can anyone help me solve this?


thanks
