Re: saving an imovie onto 500 GB desktop hard Drive
As i think that drive is in ntfs file system ... and may be u are using windows 2000 or windows xp ... may be you are using user account ... there may be somebody else who is using administrator account ... so if he would have set the file permission to not to access you cannot access it... or if u are only administrator there is only one account then there may be some bad sectors in that drive so just give for disk check if there are any bad sectors it will get corrected then if you format that partition you will get the space back....

Assuming the seagate is still working, it would be a simple matter copying the seagate to another hard drive. Need more info for your problem. Operating system, your new drive, in computer case or not.
have you installed a new hard drive, or have a new comp. you want to transfer the data to.
Your drive is probably in FAT32 format. FAT32 has a 4GB file limit that is why your 5GB movie isn't saving. You will have to format the drive in Mac OS file format (HFS) using Disk Utility.
Unfortunately once its in Mac format the drive will not be recognized by windows PCs. What I do is have a program called macdrive installed on my windows computers so that they can access mac format hard drives.
i hope this helps!
Simplest solution: back up the data on the drive and repartition it (which will wipe it). Otherwise it sounds like it could be a problem with the file tree or structure of the drive, the configuration files could be corrupt, some program could have stored temporary files in a hidden place that cannot be deleted without making the program delete them, etc. If you are on a mac, spotlight Disk Utility and use it to repartition. If you are on a PC use the search thing from the start menu and find a program called disk management (or something similar to that, you'll know it when you see it.) external drives are annoying. i kick mine into the wall periodically for good measure.
