    tried just about everything but still have a problem when trying to download and saving it to either the usb stick or sd card. the message: "could not read the contents of (name of stick.) error opening directory/media/-----/-----: permission denied."

    i can download to other places, then copy it to the stick or sd card so this frustrating but not crucial. i use chromium or firefox, ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS.

    thanks for your help. (tried to download systinfo untility but was told "an error occurred when loading the archive.")

    Based strictly on the error, the software/application doesn't have permission to access the media.

    I've only used Windows, so I don't know how to probe further.
