ls/cp ... : permission denied


hello to anybody,

facts: ... i installed and mounted a harddisk from a different pc on my own one. From there i want to copy some pieces of data to the hdd of my pc, but still i get this: cp: ... permission denied ... .
my feeling says ... it's got something to do with the userrights ... .
So my question, i don't want to touch and change the userrights of the original data ... so what can i do?

System libraries have to be in a certain place for some apps to be able to use them.

Why do you want to move them?
