    Wow if you're going to take the time to post, you can at least tell him the answer too. You can use computer programs, like winscp, to ssh in and change permission or ipod programs, like terminal, to use a command to do it. More info on both can be found by searching the forums...

    the command for terminal/ssh is:

    chmod 665 (filename)

    if it is a folder and you need to set it recursively: chmod -r 665 (foldername)

    of course, you need to navigate to that folder first
