Question about Iomega (33090) 250 GB Hard Drive
My Iomega eGo hard drive will mount on a Mac G5 and let me copy to the mac, but when I try to copy to the Iomega Hard drive it gives me a message saying "The item "file name" could not be moved because Iomega cannot be modified. What gives? When I GET INFO on the Iomega drive I noticed that the premission is for read only. How do i change that.
Format your hardrive for Mac OS:
Go to Disk Utilities under the go menu in your finder. Select the external drive and click on the erase tab. Clikc erase again and it formats the drive. You can now copy files onto the drive.

I recently bought a 500gb Iomega eGo portable drive - I intended to use it as a back up and for 'work in progress files' for files from my Windows XP lap top and my mac G5 and prefered the idea of firewire for higher transfer speed - Since the drive is formated for the mac it works fine using firewire on the mac but didn't show on the PC at all - I re-formated the drive on the mac using Disk utilities using the FAT format - The drive now seems to work fine on both machines.
