Unable to write to external Hard Drive in Bittorent


I'm not being able to write to external HDD in bittorent.
I can however write normally, move things there in shell

The error message in bittorent (azureus) is:
"Error : operation not permitted, setLength fails(allocateFiles new:/external/xyz"

How do I fix this ?

The corresponding fstab entry is:
Code:
/dev/sda1 /external vfat users,noauto,uid=wearetheborg,gid=wearetheborg 0 0

Looking for "Azureus setLength fails" shows you have to set "Enable incremental file creation" in Tools > Options > Files. Make sure mode is set to Intermediate or Advanced as it's not shown in Beginner mode.
