    Angry External HDD driving me nuts

    hi guys


    i finally managed to get my printer working on win7 & os x 10.6! woohoo

    but i have some other problems with that stupid thing...

    so, i managed to mount my hdd which is connected to a usb hub with usp as my disk is sans usp...

    how the hell do i get write permissions...???

    i formatted the hdd to ext2 via paragon, got the ext2 drivers for my win 7 tower (haven't tried it on my macbook) i can plug in the drive create a folder and then put the thing on the router, added the accounts with write permissions and all that stuff...

    so, now i can mount the drive in win 7 but i can't write to it...

    any clues what i'm doing wrong?

    thanks for the help!

    login with ftp and do a chmod 777

    or if you have linux, just mount the disk on linux and do a chmod 777 on the folders.
    windows creates folders without write rights usually
