Permission Denied on a new USB

Permission Denied on a new USB

I have a 16 GB usb drive.
I stick it in my Raspberry Pi.
I drag a simple text file from my desktop to the folder.
It moves over ok.
When I double click the file, I get the following error message:

Failed to open file “/media/kyle/USBSTORAGE/test.txt”: Permission denied

I have formatted the drive through the “Disks” program and the following:

sudo mkfs.vfat /dev/sda1
sudo chmod 0777 /media/sda1 -r
sudo chmod 0777 /media/kyle/USBSTORAGE/
sudo chmod 777 /media/kyle/USBSTORAGE/

Remove, then reboot.

Nothing works.

Here is my lsblk:

loop0 7:0 0 48.4M 1 loop /snap/core18/1753
loop1 7:1 0 85.5M 1 loop /snap/core/9806

Any help is appreciated.
