I have a MacBook Pro running OS 10.5.8 with iPhoto 8.1.2. I had my entire iPhoto library on an external hard drive. It died. Seagate replaced it under warranty. Before it COMPLETELY went out, I took it to a computer store and they were able to copy it over to two separate hard drives. I SHOULD now have 2 complete copies of my iPhoto library. But I can't get to them. When I opt+click iPhoto, I have two options. One is a small library of stuff on my computer itself (not on the external drives) with basically random stuff I just needed temporarily. It opens correctly. The other option is to choose "Other Library". But when I click that and navigate to the external hard drive, the only iPhoto libraries I see are greyed out. If I try to open the iPhoto library file on the external hard drive in Finder, I get the error "CAUTION The iPhoto Library is on a locked volume. Relaunch iPhoto when the volume has read/write accees or relaunch iPhoto with <option> key held down to choose another library." There are two files, library.iphoto and library6.iphoto, both located in DRIVE>iPhoto Library (folder). Trying to open either one results in the same error. I can see all the files (in the Modified and Originals folders) so I'm assuming the library is in there somewhere. Just can't seem to figure out how to get it to open.
