Question about Prestige Portable 320gb Usb 20 IOMEGA 34342 320 GB Hard Drive
While the drive is attached to your system and you can access it, open "Computer" or "My Computer" (depending on your operating system), then Right-Click on the drive and a menu will appear. At the bottom of that menu click on "Properties" and then make sure the drive is not marked as "Read Only". Also, go to the security tab in the "Properties" window and make sure your Administrator account and User account have Write Access to the drive.
If the above does not resolve your issue, make sure there's no write protection switch of some sort on the drive. I've never seen one like that, but it's worth checking.
Also, you could try unplugging the drive, reboot the computer, then plug the drive back into the computer once it boots back into Windows.
I hope this helps!
