    Everytime I move a file to my external harddrive, it asks for admin- name and -password, which is quite annoying. It also comes when I try to move something inside the disc image. How do I turn this off?

    Far from here

    in Finder, select your external hard drive, right-click / get infos.

    In the bottom of the window, under "sharing and permissions", check the box : "ignore ownership on this volume".
