HELP: Permissions Issue?

Hi, I am a new linux user and attempting to get Transmission running on my Raspberry Pi. I have updated all the libs and install Transmission successfully, however I am getting a permission issue. I upload a torrent via the WebUI and it appears to fail due to a permissions issue around 4MB (I believe this is the cache before it writes to disk). Below is an example of the error :

Permission denied (/mnt/Drobo/Torrents/Completed/

My download directories are :

"download-dir": "/mnt/Drobo/Torrents/Completed",
"incomplete-dir": "/mnt/Drobo/Torrents/Incomplete",

I believe my permissions are correct on the share

pi@raspberrypi:/mnt/Drobo/Torrents$ pwd
pi@raspberrypi:/mnt/Drobo/Torrents$ ls -l
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 1 root daemon 0 Jan 23 22:06 Completed
drwxr-xr-x 1 root daemon 0 Jan 23 20:29 Incomplete
drwxr-xr-x 1 root daemon 0 Jan 13 15:10 WatchFolder

I have added the transmission-daemon to the correct group :

sudo usermod -G users debian-transmission
sudo usermod -G debian-transmission pi

I can write to the mount with the stadard pi account and have tested this.

Any ideas?
