So I had a MAC fail (motherboard issues), took out the HDD, plugged it into my Ubuntu box. I can mount the drive, browse to it etc, but I cannot copy/write to/from it.

I've already run sudo/gksu nautilus, but it doesn't fix the issue. I can open/view the files, but I cannot copy them. Says "you do not have permission to read" when I try to drag/drop onto desktop. Chown returns a - "no such file/directory" when attempting to gain ownership of /media/Macintosh HD/User/contact/.

I had no issues recovering data from the BOOTCAMP partition running Windows 7. Just can't get the data off the MAC partition. Can't recover data on Windows box as it doesn't even see the drive.

Thoughts?

Yeah Windows is useless when trying to see any kind of *nix platform.

 

Check out this Ubuntu thread. I had an issue when trying to mount an Ubuntu hard drive from a different computer to Ubuntu on another computer, I had to go through some different steps and had to install a certain mounting program to mount it.

I am not a Mac expert, but if the drive is HFS+ journaled, as mentioned in the link, then give those instructions a go and see if you can get it mounted for R/W access.

That was one of the first things I tried, mounts but not RW. I'm probably just going to say screw it, put that HDD in an external HDD enclosure, get a macbook from my boss, and move the data over that way.

It took me a good couple hours (or more) to get my Ubuntu drive mounted in R/W capacity. You may have to do more google foo to get it to work. Google any errors, whatever comes up in the terminal when trying to mount it, etc.

If you have access to a mac book, by all means go that route (hopefully that works for you). All up to you.
