What OS are you running? Vista? windows 7? Man I hate that password protection script. Try running it another PC to see if it's an internal issue with the external HD and not you PC's OS. If it's allowing the process to start then obviously the password hasn't been tampered with and is probably a driver issue. Check for updates from Sony or contact their tech support.

You will have to be the computer administrator to change any values on any hard drive

click start control panel user accounts you should see a box with the administrator and the guest account if you have made one click on the administrator this may vary depending on which operating system you have

click start click to open on my computer you should see your hard drive usually C: right click select properties there will be an array of options select the security tab option then advanced make sure you have full control in windows 7

hope this helps you
