Re: Puppy Wary 5 noobie help please!
Make sure the HD is mounted before attempting to copy over the files. Just because the HD is plugged in, it is not necessary mounted. To do so, you can do it in a couple of different ways. Once the HD is plugged in, there might be an icon of the HD on the bottom left corner of the screen. Click the icon, and there should be a little dot indicating that it's mounted. Alternatively, you can click menu - filesystem - pmount (I'm doing this from memory as I'm not using puppy now). Then, assuming it is a USB HD drive you're using, there should be a usb tab. Click that, and your HD should be listed. Then, click mount.
