Have you tried as root? Also, how exactly are you mounting it? Is it a partition or a directory? If partition, is it listed in your /etc/fstab?

I have no idea about harddrake, sorry. Login to a terminal as root.

ls -l /path/to/j

will show you the permissions.

chmod 777 /path/to/j

will give everyone read/write/execute permissions (possibly unsafe).

chmod 744 /path/to/j

will give every one read access, but only the owner rwx perms.

chmod +r /path/to/j

gives everyone read access, without altering the perms of owner (other than granting read access).

Obviously put in the proper path to /j. This should get you on your way. Hope this helps.
