External Hard Drive is Write Protected
Posted on 2010-11-29
I have an external Hardrive that works perfectly for Windows Server 2008.
Read-Write without problems
I connect the same HDD to an XP-professional sp3 workstation and the Drive is Readable but not Writeable : THE MEDIA IS WRITE PROTECTED
I log into the XP workstation as the Domain Admin with the same problem
I disconnected the USB HDD and reconnected with the same No-Write problem
I try to change the Security Permissions with the XP box but cannot due to the media being write protected.
Reconnected Drive to Server and changed permissions on the entire dirve to : administrators (Full) , System (Full) , Everyone (Full)
I reconnected to XP box : Read is good , but Media is Write protected : Checked security tab and ONLY Administrators (Full) + System (Full) are listed
External HDD : Hitachi USB XL2000 2.0TB
What is the problem ?
