File Sharing

Sat Aug 31, 2013 4:07 pm

I have a raspberry pi connected to an external hard disk, and I am using samba to share it over my LAN. My problem is that I already have files in my external HDD and I managed to change the permissions of all the directories, but when I try to change the permissions of a file such as a movie or an image with chmod, it gives me an error: Operation not supported. Does anyone know a solution to this?

What format is the external disk? The chmod command will only work on Linux format partitions.
