This is an issue we see quite a bit, mini hard drives security permissions have been set to "READ ONLY". This formatting will allow us to copy data from yourhard drive, but it will not allow us to place any data on it. NOTHING. NADA. If you would like us to place your finished job back on your hard drive, be sure to set your security permissions to "READ and WRITE" by others. If you are unsure how to format for the "READ and WRITE" setting, we recommend checking with your retailer and visiting the manufacturer website and/or public forums for those details as we do not provide tech support for these types of issues.
