Okay so I’ve had this EXACT same problem with my last passport. I called tech support but they guys were basically clueless and just sent me a new disk. This is what the message say when the disk loads: “MAC OS X can’t repair “My Passpot” You can still open or copy files on the disk, but you can’t save changes to files on the disk. Back up the disk and reformat it.”
Then… When I try to back it up: “Files can’t be backed up because it appears to be ‘read only’ You may need to repiair or reformat the disk using Disk ultility.” I tried going into Ultility but it just told me it can’t reformat the disk.
So basically I can still acess my files already on the drive but I can’t save anything to it. Has anyone else had this problem with their Passport? Am I doing something wrong? I find it extremly odd that it has happened two times already.
ANY help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
