i has the smae problem.
do this.
go to terminal and type 
sudo nautilus.
nautilus will open up.
go to the moun point of the drive 
and right click on it and then change the permissioins.
for some reson i was unable to change the permission of other and groups to 
write and i had to make my user the owner.
try it.
