i have an Iomega, I moved my iphoto file to the iomega and not i cant access it. If i try through iphoto i get an error "The iPhoto Library is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have permission to make changes to it. iPhoto can try to repair the permissions." I also tried copying it back to my desktop, its starts to copy and about 170mb into the copy it stops and i get the following error "The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access some of the items."
iphoto still not working from the iomega
The iomega is not an option in Disk Utilities, it appears in Finder under shared
its wireless, connected to the wireless router
the router is Linksys E2000. I assume it is formatted, I have access to it. I can see and access folders without issue and at some point the iphoto library was working fine
i do not have it...should i down load it? The iphoto library was working at one point from the iomega.....if i format will I loose the info on the iomega?
Is there a way to check on the iomega if its formatted for Mac?
i checked the activity log on the iomega and it seems the issue started when the "Your Home Media Network Hard Drive was shut down improperly, which can cause your most recent changes to be lost." Prior to that all was working fine.
I guess my next question would be if i cant get the library file to operate from the iomega and i cant copy it to the Mac and get it to work, how can I get my pictures off the Iomega...are they stored somewhere other than the iphoto library file? If i can get the photos off the iomega i can just create a new library.
All photos are stored in the file iPhoto Library so you should be able to copy it back to your Mac but you should rename it or move your old one so you don't replace it. Then unplug the drive for a few minutes.
but as i mentioned in my original question "I also tried copying it back to my desktop, its starts to copy and about 170mb into the copy it stops and i get the following error "The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access some of the items."
i actually have to step away now, ill try to unplug and copy the library again when i return and let you know. Thanks for your help thus far...i hope we can resolve the issue since i have a lot of pictures on that library
