Writing rights?

Sat May 23, 2015 6:50 am

I have an external HDD for watching videos but now I want to move 1 file from the Raspberry to the HDD but I don't seem to have writing permission on it. How do I fix that?

Edit
I have tried with another USB-stick but no difference.

what does a
mount
command show?

The ownership and masked permissions control who can write to a mounted USB stick with a FAT filesystem.

There's your problem. Your filesystem is read-only.

Have you got ntfs-3g installed?

How do I check and how do I install?
