gutsy incorrectly recognizes an external USB harddrive as "read only"
After installing Gutsy,
My 5'th Gen iPod video will not mount at all.
And, I am having a problem with my LaCie external Hard Drive.
At first, I could not read or write to it as Gutsy annoyingly made it a Root only permission by default. This was really irritating, but not unfixable.
Then, after I changed the permissions so that all users could read/write/
Then, the other day when I tried to copy my school assignment to the school folder on my LaCie, it (Gutsy) would not let me. "Access Denied; you don't have permissions to write to this folder". When I used
to try to re-change the permissions as Root, I got; "The Owner Could Not Be Changed; Couldn't change the owner of "LaCie" because it is on a read-only disk".
There is no switch or button on the LaCie, that makes it "read only".
It's a USB external drive. There would be no point in making it "read only"
It Isn't read only.
I don't care what Gutsy thinks.
I can access it fine on the Macs at school.
So at the moment, I am unable to use it on this computer.
