i just got an external USB drive and it's named "untitled". how do i change the name?
Probably need to turn off filesharing cause sometimes if you have that on it wont let you rename anything. To reaname just double click on the name and it will go to a curson. Type what you want in an then hit return or enter.
in infor it says i only have read writes, but i can copy stuff onto it
Make sure nothing is accessing it?
nothing is...i had itunes running but shut that and it still wouldnt change. the main drive changes fine
edit: when i try to delete some folders on the external drive it says i have insufficient privledges. is there anyway to access these priveleges and could that have something to do with it? maybe i need a pin setting on the drive (i took out the slave pin when i put it in the external case)
edit2: i placed the pin in the right place. one thing i noticed is that this hard drive is formated for the windows nt file system, not OS X. could this be the problem?
What's that thing that you do in OSX that rebuilds the permissions or something? I've never had to do it but I hear it fixes issues. Maybe this is one of them?
-open disk utlity
-select the hard drive
-use either ox jounrnaled or unjournaled, your choice
nah no win because i have 65 gigs of mp3s and some movies that i need to keep on that hard drive lol....i'll wait until the next lan party and transfer the data to a friends comp.
ah....yea......ummmmm.....hmmmm wish i could help
