I realize this is only marginally a Thrive issue. But its become a concern for us.
We are going to Italy, taking only our Thrive Tablet for photos, mapping, and email. To back everything up, and entertain ourselves on rainy days, we bought a Seagate GoFlex 500 gig Portable hard drive. I formatted it to exfat32, and loaded all our movies and back up files for the trip on the drive. It took awhile but worked. The Thrive read everything fine and still does. The problem is that the laptop (a windows 7/64 bit box) can no longer add files to the portable hard drive. I can delete, but not add. The Thrive writes without a problem. I also tried the drive on a windows Vista box and it just tells be that the drive is "write protected". A search of the net on the "dirty hard drive" which needs to be "chkdsk"ed revealed others with the problem but no solutions other than just wiping the drive and starting over. And yes, I tried all the various switches for "chkdsk". None worked. Has anyone else encountered this issue and hopefully has some insight? I think it is some sort of windows permssions error but am too long retired to now figure it out.
