Came across this thread while searching for a solution to the same problem yesterday. I figured out a suitable workaround in case anyone is still dealing with this:

I can confirm this is not a permissions issue, it seems that MakeMKV is only "aware" of certain root directories no matter who owns it. I.e. you can search for a disc in '/bin/' even though this is owned by root however other root directories like '/media/' don't show up in MakeMKV's file explorer.
I use MakeMKV to save to /media/XXX and /mnt/XXX all the time and never have a problem on my Linux Mint systems.

I install by downloading and building from source. I don't use Flatpack to install, so maybe it has something to do with running in a container. You can't really blame MakeMKV for that.

+1 on running from compiled source with no such issue.

I fixed this simply by going to ubuntu software > search for makemkv > in makemkv page klick "permissions" > allow "Read / write on removable storage devices.

should be something similar on mint. :D
