    my iomega 80GB ext FW HDD mounts normally on my G4 Quicksilver (1GB/40GB int, 10.3.latest) but I can't save anything to it, in fact I can't even create new folders on it! I noticed a little crossed out pencil sign in the corner, how can I fix this? Oddly, the drive seems to be normal when using with my 12" PB 1.33, same OS, mostly same programs... any ideas?

    I've tried checking/repairing permissions on the PM's internal HDD, but it won't let me for the iomega ext... help!!!

    So it works on your 12" mac? Same OS Version? You might as well install the 10.3.9 update availble now in software update. That might fix your problem.
