Can not access slave drive
I'm unable to access the slave drive on my desktop when I run Ubuntu 12.04. My desktop machine has 2 x 80Gig HDD. I ran Gparted and formatted and cleaned the drives before installing 12.04. However I can see it on my desktop but when I try and copy files to it it tells me I don't have permission. I'm new to Linux and want to learn.
