root permissions with fdisk


I have a 250GB sata harddrive that I've been trying to use for a NFS network. I partitioned it using "fdisk" under my account enabling root privileges to use the command using "sudo".

After the disk is partitioned and the partition/partitions are formatted, I access the partitions from "my computer". The partitions mount successfully, but I am unable to store files in them. It says:

"Error opening file '/media/b55379a4-7f09-400b-a041-2792534ae987/NFS on linux.odt': Permission denied"

The permissions of the partitions were checked, an noticed ownership is set under the root only. I logged into the root account, and there is no permissions under the root to set.

What is causing this miss ownership delegation?:dry:
