    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.
