I am no expert, but had a similar sounding issue with a usb stick.

I also used Kubuntu - so the details may be slightly different:

In System settings, there was a disk and filesystems screen , and I 
could use the admin level to change the ownership from root to (user).

There will also of course be methods of usingc ommand line etc.
