Can you share your proftpd configuration file. Also, share the distribution you are using. Do you have anonymous enabled for this ftp server? If yes, did you try logging in with anonymous account. If it not enabled did you try enabling it and test if that works.

Few things to check:

1. Does user FTP has got access to: /media/FD directory.
2. Does user FTP has got valid shell, you can check that by running:

Code:
cat /etc/passwd | grep -i ftp
If it says /sbin/nologin change it to /bin/bash

This is a customized location which you want your anonymous FTP user to access. Did you try it with default one? Did it work?
