I cannot open any of my files on my signature mini


If anyone else has been using the hard drive, they may have changed the permission settings or encrypted them.
Another consideration, did you log in as an administrator? Was your "User Account" setting changed from Administrator to "Limited"?

Is the signature mini hard drive formatted to the same file allocation table setting as the OS you're plugged into?

Upgraded to win 7, now the black cherry, Signature 320 is no longer recognized and will not download a driver, is one available for Win 7, will not run in compatability settings.


No driver is required to use the drive. Try another cable or another port on the computer. If you are using it bus-powered, try using a USB "Y" cable as some computers cannot provide enough power through one port. If you need more help, please call HitachiGST Tech Support M-F 8AM to 6PM PST at 1.888.426.5214 and a technician will be happy to help you.

I am using Mac and I can not change the permission on my hard drive 320 G Signature Mini to write it only lets me read what do I ...


Ahhh, this is a common problem. The only file system that is both Windows and Apple compliant is the FAT32 file system format. You will have to back up everything and reformat to FAT32.

If you use FAT32 you are restricted to on 4GB files... That means no movies, no long recording, nothing :-/

_OR_

You can format the HDD with your Apple computer and have no restrictions. That file format is called Mac OS Extended Journalled. I reccomend this but keep in mind, it is NOT readable with all non-Mac friendly operating systems, especialy Windows :)

Unable to write , only read ????


This is probably formatted with NTFS, the hard drive format used by Vista and now Windows 7.

Mac's OS can't write to NTFS but it can read it. I assume the data is important, so try another PC to transfer to another hard MAC hard drive then port that into your Mac or You can try to down convert it to FAT if you are proficient with utilities.
