And use the Mac's OS Get Info to "Ignore ownership on this volume."

For how, see:
Final Cut Pro Training | Mac OS: Turn Off Drive Ownership | Final Cut Pro Training & Classes

Macintosh Reference Guide | Ignoring Ownership | Peachpit

Or google search for more with 'mac ignore ownership on this volume' etc.
