I bought a My Passport Ultra for my MacBook Pro 13" along with purchasing the computer back in October or November of 2015. I started using the passport right away by plugging it into my old PC to transfer all my photos to the passport. Then I plugged it in to my Mac to transfer some of the photos/documents on to the new computer. It’s worked perfectly fine ever since. I few days ago, I used my old PC laptop to transfer photos from my SD card onto the passport. Today, when I tried to do the same thing with different photos using my Mac, it didn’t work. Although my Mac still recognizes it and allows me to look at files/photos already on the passport, it doesn’t seem to let me transfer anything to it. I went into Finder and clicked “Get Info”, which told me that my permissions were “You can only read.”
Can anyone help me? I’m new to both Macs and Passports… I read that I might need to reformat the passport to get it to be compatible with Macs, but I don’t have anywhere to put the stuff on my passport while I do that, and it’s certainly not stuff I’m willing to lose.
Any help is very very much appreciated!!
