    I have a 80GB external hard drive ona USB. And when i connect it with my PC it works fine and i can put files on it and take files of it. However when i try to do it on my MacBP i can only take files of it and i can't put any files on it, and the reason it gives is because i don't have enough administrative rights... But about a month ago it worked absolutely fine....

    Can anybody help please.
