|I've had this 500 GB external hard drive for a few years now and it has never been a problem up until now. I recently bought a PS3 and had to reformat my hard drive from NTFS to FAT32 to be able to connect it to the PS3. This whole process took about a day considering the hard drive is just about full and I work off a netbook running Windows 7 Starter. It's been working fine hooked up to the PS3, no problems at all. |
I tried to hook it up to my netbook again to back up some new files and retrieve old ones, but and error message keeps popping up saying "D:\ is not accessible. Access is denied." I've tired to following:
-Open it as an admin
-Change the ownership, which I was unable to do. I tried a few times, but again, it kept saying "Access Denied"
-I went into cmd to check if the files are in the directory. I got the "Access is Denied" message here as well.
-I checked to see if it was being a considered a foreign drive in disk management, but this said that there is a drive connected which should be working fine and is also empty
I've been searching the internet for solutions, but so far nothing I have found has worked. Any help would be fantastic.
