1. So if I understand the post correctly, You want to make a "Media Center"...?
Yes, that is my primary objective. Although I will be keeping various files on the drives as well.

* Great! It is a great project and worth the time and fun you will have later!

2. What is going to be the Media Center? The Windows, Plex system, which is Dell Latitude E6400 Laptop right?
Plex is what I will be running and it is a Latitude E6400 desktop with 6GB of RAM. I can post spcs if needed.

* Sorry I thought laptop as my E6400 is a laptop...  Smile

3. I assume the Element and HP drives are USB external drives right? "Watch this video; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeR8Rk5LwWU&t=809s it will explain what to do."

Yes they are. They load rather slowly due mainly to the amount of data on the drives but I can live with that I think.

* They do load slow at times, but for this to work you will need to auto load them in your Fstab file when booting so that they will always be available. I know a broken record but watch the video and look at the files I share and you should be able to get all going... I'm 65 and I made it...Lol

Finally...
It's usually something dumb so I'm going to ask are you trying to fix the permissions from the machine that is mounting the drives or from a different one?

I am trying to fix all of this from the machine where they are mounted.

* Well ok it is all fixable and can be done. It is how you setup all loading of drives, folders, sharing said drives/Folders that will make it all work. The main thing is to remember, "if you use "sudo" to complete a task, you are the "root" owner and the only one that can change that setting."
You have to set the "properties/permissions tab" for the drive so anyone can "create and delete" on it do it will all work.

If you format a drive in "gparted" (which means you are the "Root" user because it asks for the Root Password) and then you exit Gparted and try to use the drive as yourself, nothing will work because you are not the "Root" user....
Yes you then have to go back to being the "Root" user and set the "Access" in the "Properties/Permissions tab" so everyone in your group can use the drive... Then it will work for "you"...
Now say it, I know, watch the video....LOL  Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

Have fun with this project, it is a great learning experience and once it sticks it will not totally go away. BTW, when you add a new hard drive to your system, it is the same fun... Take care my friend... Later!
P.S. I use alot of Joe's as references all the time..
