I have recently installed fedora 19. My usb harddisk (1TB) is detected and automounted in /run/media/username/ExpansionDrive. Everything is fine upto this.

But all the files are having only -rw------ permissions. I am unable to change permission using chmod. Because of this I am able to delete and add files but unable to execute any script. I could'nt find any entry in /etc/fstab file for this external harddisk

Any one please help pmvelu

What is the partition type? You can find this by running the Disks utility or executing the following command as root: fdisk -l

Can you also update with the chmod command you attempted ?
