I've tried formatting multiple times, FAT32, HFS, NTFS, they all seem to have the same problem. I thought it might be something weird going on with the /dev/*disk* node, but the permissions on that are just fine. Other external drives work fine on this computer, including my 750GB 'morespace' (forget the brand..)
When I mount the drive, I can usually see the files on it for a while, but as soon as I try to write, I get 'permission denied' and I suddenly lose read access! Then I can't dismount the drive without manually -force'ing it with hdiutil
ls -a, even with sudo, gives me NO output, not even . and .. ?
(seventoes)-(jobs:0)-(/Volumes/Bigdrive) (! 523)-> ls -a (seventoes)-(jobs:0)-(/Volumes/Bigdrive) (! 524)-> sudo ls -a Password: (seventoes)-(jobs:0)-(/Volumes/Bigdrive) (! 525)-> hdiutil eject -force /Volumes/Bigdrive "disk1" unmounted. "disk1" ejected.
Anyone know what the hell is going on? Weirdest problem I've ever faced....
