    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!

    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.

    Intended pun that you put SkyDrive last or hilarious coincidence? :D
