Are you running as root or as a normal user?
Are you trying to MOVE the file ... or copy it ?
ls -l /media/QUAKE2/Install/Data/baseq2 will give you the permissions on the file

You probably should look at this
LQ tutorial on file permissions.
If you don't want to read that, try man chmod and man chown, although I suggest the former.
