I was told by my "Mac mentor," who lives in the Silicone Valley, that you must "bless" a Mac. That means, when you install new devices, you must reboot. After spending almost an hour with a tech representative who couldn't help me, I then rebooted my Mac, and everything works fine, now.

Hopes this helps.

I have a mac and a new iogmega external drive, 500g. I cannot move any files onto the iomega or save them. I get messages such as "that file does not exist" to iomega can't be modified,...


Hello,
With the drive plugged in, going into your Applications ' Utilities ' Disk Utility Select the drive and press Verify Disk, Repair Disk and Repair Permissions. If you don't have anything on the drive right now, try formatting it with the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) file system from the Disk Utility.
If that doesn't work the drive may be damaged. If you have another PC / Mac, trying plugging it in and see if it works there. If the drive is under 1 year old it should still be under warrantee, in which you could return it / RMA and get a new one sent back from the manufacture.
Regards, Chris

There could be several problems going on here. Try this first If still unsuccessful you may need to run chkdsk in windows (XP or 7). This will unlock the protection bit on the ntfs file system and the disk should be fine. If there is a problem chkdsk will tell you. Also always remember to eject or safely remove external hard drive.

Problems adding files onto the hardrive


This sounds as though the Iomega has got locked somehow.
Do a get info on its desktop icon and have a look at the lock checkbox. Also look at the write permissions while you are there.
