Let me break that down for you and eventually spare you and Ralf some
extra-bounces. Hopefully without making anyone feel diminished, (rest
assured i only do this because at some point i wished i would have got some
instruction broken down to me. <3)

1. here Ralf is using "touch" to create an empty file called "foo"
2. "ls" is the command for listing directories, -hAl is the option to have
a long listing format of  *almost* all details in human readable form about
owners, permission, size, creation date etc...
3. this is the result of ls -hAl: -rw-r--r-- is the permission, 1st
rocketmouse is the user 2nd rocketmouse is the group
4. chmod as you know, to change permissions on foo
5. lets see the result of that chmod command
6. result
7. lets try another permission setting
8. how's it looking?
9. result of the new chmod setting

chown, as kindly suggested by Ralf, is the command to change the owner user
and the owner group.

sudo chown user:group /path/to/folder/or/file.foo

to change recursively with -R as suggested
sudo chown -R user:group /path/to/folder/

Let us know what result you get :)

There are some mp3 players out there, like older ipods (maybe the new ones
too, i don't have any), that will not let you access the part of the disk
where the mp3's are stored without a special program, but still work as an
external storing device for any type of file upon mounting the disk with
usb. I don't know about this Denver device, but i would contact them too if
i was you :)

Hope you figure things out!! Good luck!
