I have three 180GB External HDDs hooked up to my computer and they ALL experience the SAME issue!!! I CANNOT write ANY files to the root directory of the drive!!! ALL programs results a some kind of "permission denied" error or another!!! I HAVE to create a sub folder before I can write ANY file!!!!!!! There is NO OS installed on any of these external HDD drives!!! they just have a bunch of pictures and stuff backed up... and Google is getting NOTHING when I search the problem!!!!!!! How do I get anything to write to the root directory of these drives???
