I have two machines running pclos 2009 and one external usb harddrive with ext3
When I plug the harddrive to machine #1 it works fine and i can read and write to it.
When I plug it to machine #2 I can't write to it. I changed the permissions on the directory I want to write to to 777; i tried to write while running as root. nothing works.
Longer story: I am trying to copy the content a few data cds to the harddrive. the cds mount and are readable on machine #2 but would not mount on machine #1.
So here I am with two machines, each working half a** and am not able to copy from a cd to a ahrddrive.
Now my question: why wouldn't the harddrive be writeable on one machine but is writeable on the other?
