I just bought the following external hard drive, to use as a back-up system
I just can't use it. I plug it in, it seems to get mounted all right, I can see what files are on it (there is a pre-installed NERO for windows) but I can't write to it.
When I try to copy a file onto it, it creates the file name, the transfer window pops up, but it stays "stalled" (showing the transfer at 0% for an infinite time).
I thought that any external hard drive were compatible with Linux. Am I wrong?
(I must add that it works fine on windows)
I am running a Penthium III machine with Kubuntu 7.
