How to change access rights of USB drive ? - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi, I have managed to mount an external USB drive from instructions I googled. I can read/write etc. when I am root, but when I try as a normal user I get permission denied. I added /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb auto noauto,owner 0 0 to the /etc/fstab file as per the googled instructions. The drive is mounted at /mnt/usb I have tried chmod a+w /mnt/usb this does not give any error, but the access rights do not seem to change. Regards Anton Erasmus...

    Default How to change access rights of USB drive ?

    Hi,

    I have managed to mount an external USB drive from instructions
    I googled. I can read/write etc. when I am root, but when I try
    as a normal user I get permission denied.
    I added /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb auto noauto,owner 0 0
    to the /etc/fstab file as per the googled instructions.

    The drive is mounted at /mnt/usb
    I have tried chmod a+w /mnt/usb
    this does not give any error, but the access rights do not seem
    to change.

    Regards
