I recently purchased a Toshiba 1TB ext HD which I have formated for compatibility with my Mac -Mac OS Extended (Journaled)

I have read /write permissions for the drive

The HD is recognised - on my desktop and I can save files to it but when I try to create a new folder (right click - drop down new folder)

I get the message

The operation can't be completed.

An unexpected error occurred (error code - 50).

I have a Seagate HD on which I can create folders without problems

Any suggestions?


PS how do you post screen shots on discussion page drag and drop gives a file reference only?

iMac, Mac OS 9.1.x
