New disc drive - access problem

Hi

I've added a second hard drive to my computer. I had no problem using GParted to partition and format it as an ext4 partition, and it's visible as an extra device. But when I try to read from the drive, I get "Folder contents could not be displayed, You do not have permission". When I right-click on the device properties, I can see the owner is root, not my username. How do I give myself permission to access the drive?

Thanks

Have root chown it to you or make permissions changes, or operate as root. As far as UNIX/LINUX is concerned, it is still raw, lacking a file system, not mounted and awaiting additional administrative (root) action.
