permission denied to paste files to secure micro chip. 'owner' is 'root'.

Permission denied to paste files from my docs/user/home to secure digital memory chip but not to a pen drive.
I am the owner. this on a Asus Eee, Ubuntoo type Linux. This version of Linux was installed and set up by a friend who is far more knowledgable than I on such matters but who is unavailble to help. I am at 'ignorant' level of Linux. I have read the 'new users' sections on this website and also searched through the forum for Newbies as well as s imilar threads. Any suggestions on the direction to search for the solution are welcome. thanks.
