Tried mounting it in /mnt there is no difference still cant open video files (can't open ANY files for that matter - always says permission denied). I can open things when I'm root no matter which way it's mounted.
output for "mount | grep STORAGE"
/dev/sdc5 on /run/media/user/STORAGE type ext3 (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,seclabel,data=ordered,uhelper=udisks2)
output for "ls -l /run/media/user/STORAGE/Storage/video.avi".
-rw-------. 1 root root 1161334784 Mar 18 2007 /run/media/user/STORAGE/Storage/video.avi
As soon as I give myself read/write priveleges I can open whatever I want. Might it be that I need to give the user execute priveleges on the partition as well as read priveleges?
