Hi guys looking for a little help,

I have 2 photos (jpeg) on my iOS 5 desktop and i need to transfer them to my work pc which is windows XP.

I have an external hard drive plugged into my MBP but it wont allow me to drag the 2 files over!

Anyone know a way around this?

Help appreciated as always guys!

Sorry i meant Mac OS X.

Im not sure of the format but i can take files from the drive with no issues.
When you say "take files", you mean click and drag them off? (and remove them from the drive or leave a copy on there?)

Also, (apologies for nooby response) have you checked to see if the drive is Write-protected? That will allow you to copy things off but not write to it.

Just saw the response above mine - it's better :)

File system is probably incompatible.

Try:
Email
CD
USB stick
FTP
Windows Share/Samba
DropBox
Google Docs
SkyDrive

The sky is the limit so many ways to transfer files.
