If the Device Server fails to read or write a file, you have most probably run the Device Server as a root. In that case, it creates files owned by the root that are not accessible to normal users.
Running software as a root is not good practice, and with the Device Server, there is no need for it.
To solve this problem, designate a normal user to it and always use that, never the root.
