Permission Refused to read my external hard drive
Posted on 2008-11-03
I can't access my WD external hard drive anymore (firewire).
I have an Imac with leopard.
Two weeks ago, my system wouldn't boot anymore. Nothing worked of the classical solutions (safe mode, etc...), so i decided do restore the system from Leopard CD. It created a user called 'previous system' and kept all my datas. The only problem is that now when i try to acces my hard drive, it says that i don't have the permissions to do so (the drive appears on the desktop with a little lock).
When I try to change the permissions, it doesn't let me do so, even though i have the administrator's rights (unelss i mistake). Safe Mode doesn't help...The otpion 'repair permissions' isnt available in the disk utilities.. I am clueless!! Thanks for your help
