Welcome to linuxhelp.

For reference what linux distribution/version are you running.

What filesystem was used to format the drive? i.e ext4, vfat, ntfs etc.

Most distributions will auto mount the drive. The easiest might be to unplug and replug the drive to see what happens.

I took a ssd that I have been using and formatted it. Then I used gparted set it up for ntfs
/dev/sdb1 ntfs 119.24 GiB used 68.17 MiB 119.17 unused.
Now it is seen in gparted only and the mount is not high lighted gparted does not know were to mount it and I'm stuck there
I now have the drive mounted, But it will not let me write to it, nor delete one file on it.

How are you mounting the drive? Try:

sudo mount -t ntfs-3g -o permissions /dev/sdb1 /media/some_dir

sudo chown -R your_user:your_user /media/some_dir
