OS X :: After 10.6.3 / Cannot Write To SMB Network Drives Anymore?

Mar 31, 2010

Since the update to 10.6.3, I'm not able to write to mounted SMB drivers anymore. Reading and copying, as well as changing filesnames does work properly, but I cannot save any new files to the drives.

Following error appears:
The operation can�t be completed because you don�t have permission to access some of the items.

I've checked the NAS (Thecus N5200 Pro), but all permissions are correct. Same thing from a second Mac with 10.6.3 to the sames SMB mounted drivers.

OS X :: Unable To Write To External Hard Drive Anymore

Dec 10, 2009

I have a Toshiba 250GB external hard drive to back up pictures. I can write to it just fine. I also have a Fantom Drive 1TB external. I could write to it last week, but I turned it on this week and I can't write to it. I can still pull stuff off of it, but I can't write to it. What can be causing this? I have already installed MacFuse and NTFS-3G. It doesn't make sense to me that I can't write to it all of the sudden.

MacBook Pro :: No DVD Drives Anymore

Jun 23, 2012

I have a macbook and have been looking at macbook pro as I may upgrade. It doesn't look like any of the apple notebooks on the market now have DVD drives in them. Because if it is, it's not a good thing, in my opinion.

PowerPC :: Hard To Read / Write To External Drives With G5

Sep 17, 2007

This issue has been killing my work flow for quite awhile. I have a G5 dual 2.0. I can barely read or write files to an external hard drive. Say I try and copy 1.56GB of audio (12 files) from my external drive it will start to copy then stop at 500mb for minutes then start moving as normal and stop again around 900 for minutes.. then again at 1.4. This also happens when writing.

Here is the confusing part. This happens with two external drives (different models) with firewire 400, 800 and USB. I have reinstall OSx. I have repaired permissions and ran repair disc on everything. These hard drives work FLAWLESS with my Macbook Pro as well. Gr what can this be? It takes forever to copy data to or from a drive which is often how I transfer audio between my desktop and laptop. I should soon have Mac Pro money and this crappy G5 can go out the window. I am on 10.4..

OS X :: Does Mac Write Any Unique Info To External Drives On Mount?

Dec 24, 2009

I've always wondered this: I know when you mount a drive (USB stick, FireWire external or even an iPod of some sort) in OS X, a few invisible files get created. And if you have an AV program, sometimes it will write files to the drive. Same with some other third party apps. Do any of these files contain personal information, or things unique to the machine? Like user name or directory structure or things of that nature? I assume they don't, or else you'd probably see it mentioned more often, but I was wondering if anyone had a definitive answer..?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Read And Write To External Hard Drives?

Apr 13, 2012

hey all, this has been really frustrating for me today. i want to be able to write to an external HDD that's formatted in NTFS. today i find out it isn't possible to write to this file system on a Mac and that on FAT32 it is possible. however, FAT32 can't address files larger than 4GB so this hurts me a lot. are there any other file systems that'll allow me to read and write from a Mac? my goal was to use freeNAS to build a NAS with an old tower and connect my external hard drives to it, but if i can't write to them this may not be possible.

MacBook Pro :: Paragon HFS+ For Windows Can't Read / Write Flash Drives

Apr 10, 2012

I use Paragon HFS+ for Windows which allows me to read and write to my HFS formatted drives. It works great for any external hard drive I use but when I use a flash drive it doesn't work. I format both my external hard drives and flash drives the same way, I use Disk Utility, I format them using Mac Extended Journaled and GUID partition scheme. When plugging in my flashdrive, my Windows 7 PC will not mount them. Disk Manager shows 3 partitions: EFI, Fat32 and some empty space. If I format my flash drives using the Master Boot Record partition scheme they work great.

So, here's what I have so far:External hard drives work fine when formatted with the GUID Partition scheme. (Mac extended journaled) Hard drives also show 3 partitions in Windows Disk Manager: EFI, HFS and empty spaceFlashdrives show 3 partitions but oddly enough the second partition shows as FAT32. But is completely unusable in Windows 7 Flash drives have to be formatted using the Master Boot Record partition scheme when formatting them as HFS+ volumes in order to work on Windows 7Windows 7 supports GUID partition schemes.

What is causing my Macbook Pro to treat an external hard drive differently then a flash drive when formatting them? Experience and common sense tells me that it shouldn't matter whether it's a flash drive or spindle drive, both should format the same. Granted, I could simply use exFat or FAT32 on my flash drives for cross platform compatibility however I prefer to use HFS+ when possible.

OS X :: Unable To Read / Write / Eject Shared Network Volume?

Jul 24, 2008

I have my iMac and PC connected to each other through the ethernet. The iMac is set to read/write the shared network volumes on my PC. The Finder is used to set up the SMB connection. Everything works fine. Mac applications are able to read and write files to the PC.

However, after a day or so (during which the PC has been kept on, while the Mac has slept) problems occur. It seems as if it is possible to access the network volumes and even view the root directory. However, clicking on any directory will show a blank directory.

MacBook Pro :: VPN Connection Through Network Connect, NC Does Not Load Anymore

Mar 8, 2012

I recently purchased a Mac 10.7.3. I was never a Mac user, so I am kind of lost.I was connecting through VPN Network Connect at work, but it recently stopped working. I read a few support stuff saying that there is a bug with the new JAVA update, Juniper Networks and Apple updates. I am not sure if that's what happen. This is the message that I get when I try to load Network Connect : System extension cannot be used The system extension “/usr/local/juniper/nc/7.1.0/nctun_tiger.kext” was installed improperly and cannot be used. Please try reinstalling it, or contact the product’s vendor for an update. After I hit cancel and try again, I no longer get the message, but it just loads endlessly.  I tried deleting NC and reinstalling it, but it don't work.  I tried running the tunnel through Google Chrome rather than Safari. I tried Java updates. Nothing works.IT at work is not Mac friendly and the company that manages all the VPN access is also not that savy and says it's my problem. Given that I am not too familiar with Mac yet, I can't get out of it on my own.

I used to be able to drag files over to my storage drive from Windows 7, but I'm unable to do it now, I have Boot Camp 3.1 installed and the latest update for it. If I right click in the storage drive and select New Folder it says Destination Access Denied, and has the buttons Continue / Skip / Cancel. When I click Continue, it shows the same dialog but it says You need permission to perform this action and the buttons Try Again or Cancel, I've repeatedly clicked Try Again and it does nothing.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Printer Sharing Over Local Network Does Not Work Anymore

May 24, 2012

'all of a sudden' (so it seems) my 2 printers in my network do not print printjobs from other macs in my network. It dit work. Nothing really changed, exept some system-updates.

print-share is on, awake out of sleep is on (network-tab). Really there is no reason that it would not work. Still, ... it doesn't. 


- imac 27" 2011, software updated

- macmini 2010, software updated

canon ip4200, works standard on imac. brother HL-2030, works standard on imac 

The charm of the set-up was that I could have my printers in the office and still print from the livingroom (mac mini)  To try to solve the problem I moved the mac mini temporarily to the office, so I have it next to the imac.

Opening the section 'printers and scanners' and then pressing the '+' does however give me 2 differentviews:

- on the imac I get a sub menu, dropping down from the '+'

- on the mac mini I get a new window named 'add new printer' (this is hopefully the right translation - I am on a Dutch system)

This strikes me as odd. I never noticed this before. Maybe this is where the problem lies?

OS X :: Looking For Searchable Network Drives?

Oct 5, 2010

So, I searched [ here and the web ] and tried the terminal sudo force method [ didn't work ] ...

Is there not a way to search your networked drives? Those connected to say, an Airport Extreme via USB?

I really don't get it -- I don't understand why this is not possible.

I tried the "add to privacy in Spotlight" and remove several times, no luck

and the

sudo terminal method... no luck?

I can't believe this is still impossible.... am I missing something or should I just stop looking and deal with it?

OS X :: Access Network Drives Over The Internet?

Jan 10, 2010

Ive got a DrayTek Vigor2700 router. The DrayTek router is located in the first floor and is hooked up to the phone line. It creates Wireless network (called "default") for the first floor. On the second floor there is an AirPort Extreme Basestation. Its hooked up to the DrayTek by ethernet and creates a network (called "AirPort Extreme". To the AirPort there is a 500 gb USB drive and a USB printer connected.

1 floor: DrayTek hooked up to the phone line creating a network
2 floor: AirPort Extreme hooked up to the DrayTek via ethernet, creating a new network. Got 500gb USB drive and a USB Printer connected to the AirPort.

AIM: I want to be able to access the USB drive and the printer over internet. I dont have a MobileMe acc, and i dont want to create one. I know it would be much easier if the AirPort would be hooked up to the phone line directly, but Its not possible...

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Cannot Search Network Drives

Feb 23, 2012

I have set up my mac at work to connect to the smb network, yet I cannot search the shared folders via the finder. I will pre-empt the apologists here, thanks, I don't want to hear you point of view about how I don't need this fuction. I don't want to hear how os x uses and index and apple are wise to disable it in network drives (yet they are not wise enough to implement any other way to search said drives...). I want to put my point across that they better fix it soon.  I also want to hear other people who 've run into this problem and if they 've found any work arounds. There's a free app called easyfind but I am not that happy with it, and there's also some convoluted terminal work around that has to be repeated every time os x starts from what I 've been reading. 

I will also be submitting feedback to apple. Ios looking fancy artifacts are all good and well (I dislike them, but I am not that much bothered) but what about some real functionality in core os services such as the finder? Does any one at the os x team really think it's acceptable in 2012 that your mac connects to a network drive in an office and can't search it? I am using a folder in the network to store my work and I can't search that folder to quickly find something to show to a colleague? What do you expect me to do copy it over to my local drive, use a third party app to sync it to the network, and search my local drive instead?

OS X :: Cannot Read Or Mount Network NTFS Drives

Nov 8, 2010

I am running Snow Leopard. I have a few drives on my PC that I have shared, three are NTFS and one is FAT32. I can read and write to the FAT32 on just fine, everything works as it should with it. I can view the NTFS shared drives, though when I try to access them I get this error. The operation can't be completed because the original item for "Drive Name" can't be found. I can read NTFS USB drives fine, and with NTFS Mounter running I can write to them all the same. However this is not the case whatsoever with networked NTFS drives. I am sharing them from a Windows 7 x64 PC, my Mac is a 1st gen Intel Core Duo 1.66.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: "Save" Not Working On Network Drives?

May 24, 2012

We have a user at one of our graphics locations that recently upgraded to a new iMac with 10.7 since her old machine died. They have multiple network drives that they use. These are windows 2003 R2 servers.  

On 10.6 if they had a PDF open in Acrobat or a Quark job open (one that they opened from the server)... they could just do a command + s and save the file to the same location. Now, when they do a command + s it brings up the save as window and they have to navigate back to the folder where the original file was stored. In some instances, there are so many jobs and multiple versions of the job for a customer, that can take a long time to navigate back.  

Is there a quick setting to turn this off or is this something new that was implemented in 10.7 that they need to deal with?

OS X :: Are Solid-state Drives Faster Than Hard Disk Drives?

Sep 13, 2009

I'm looking at the specs page for the MacBook Pro and it reads this...

Your MacBook Pro comes standard with a 5400-rpm Serial ATA hard drive. Choose a hard drive with a faster speed for greater performance. Or you can choose a solid-state drive that offers enhanced durability.

Basically suggesting that the HDD option has a performance advantage over the SSD, but is this the case? I always thought SSDs could read & write quicker because they use solid-state flash memory as opposed to hard disks.

I want to go with the 256GB SSD but I want to know how it ranks in speed.

OS X :: Time Machine - Two Source Drives To Two Backup Drives

I have a question regarding Time Machine functionality. Here's my situation. I have two hard drives in my Pro: one that operates as a Boot drive, and one for storage. Right now I have Time Machine set up to backup my storage drive, but I was wondering if it was possible to have plug in a second external drive and use it to back up the Boot drive. I searched for a similar thread, but couldn't really find anything. Has anybody successfully done this?

OS X :: Unable To Access Network Window / Network Settings Changed By Another Application

Dec 11, 2009

My neighbor has an IMac with OS 10.4.11 installed. When I open System Preferences and select the Network icon, the Network window comes up but it is overlayed with a message that states: "Your network settings have been changed by another application." When I click OK, this same overlaid window comes back.

The only way I can get out of System Preferences at this point is to do a Force Quit. In other words, because this overlaid window appears, I am unable to access the Network window to look at TCP/IP settings, make changes, etc.

Next I went into System/Library/Preference Panes/Network.prefPane(more info) to look at the application that appeared in the "Open with" field. It stated "System Preference." I replaced this with a new "System Preferences from the Applications Folder, but the same thing happened - even after I rebooted the computer.

Please let me know how to solve this problem so I can access the Network System Preferences properly.

Thank you.
