I'm having an odd problem. I have a 160GB NTFS-formatted USB HDD which I plugged into my machine running 12.04. The drive auto-mounts, and on the desktop I can make folders, add files, etc.
I can also add files to it through the command line, and read them, so no problem there.
However, when I put all my new media on this drive, Plex Media Server could not read from it as permission was denied. I have an FTP server, and I can read and write files to the drive through that, although FileZilla says that the permissions for /media/srv (where the drive is mounted) are 700.
I have tried sudo chmod -R 755 on the drive but to no avail. I've also tried changing the permissions through FileZilla, which returned a 200 success code, but that made no difference either. What should I do now? I heard of sudo umount -l /media/srv and then sudo mount -o umask=0022 /dev/sdb1 /media/srv, but that didn't work either
