First, we need some info.  Type:


in the command prompt.  Copy your uid and gid (probably 1000).


mount the drive manually.

In a command prompt, type:

df -T

Reply with this output.

Basically, you're going to modify /etc/fstab to make the drive mount on 
boot with ownership going to you (you probably only need to fake the 
ownership if it's fat32 or ntfs).
