I am a noob so please bare with me.

I open
 $ sudo gedit
type in
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="048e", OWNER="MYNAME" GROUP="adm"
of course substituting my real username for MYNAME

then I try to save as: etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules

but my computer wont let me save the file, I believe it doesn't recognise the ending ".rules"

can anyone help?
sorry if this is too noob.
When using gedit, its recommended that you use gksudo.

"gksudo gedit"

Are you trying to save the file from gedit and it still doesn't work? If so, save the file to the desktop, in the terminal type "gksudo nautilus" so you can open nautilus with root privileges, navigate to the specified directories and place the file there.

Hope this helps.
