My WD MyBook Essential with USB 2.0 appears with read-only permissions. I set the drive up on my old Vista machine, and when Vista began crashing, I switched to Ubuntu. I still have the Ubuntu machine, but started using a Mac.
The drive is encrypted through the WD SmartWare program. While I can unlock the drive, and access files, I can't write to it from either machine.
Is it possible to make the drive writable from my Mac without losing data?
