View Full Version : [ubuntu] Having trouble using External hard drive

September 8th, 2011, 04:07 PM
I have a Buffalo external hard drive. It has Drive Navigator software on it which it makes me go through to get onto the drive. Is there anyway to remove this because right now I am unable to access any files on my drive. If I go to Disk Utility, it shows the drive there, but in my actual Files, it only shows the fake CD that is supposed to run the drive navigator software.

Is this on a separate partition? If so, presumably you could format that to get rid of the software, but look out for other problems if you do that without investigating it thoroughly first; it may be necessary for the drive to work at all, so if possible, back up that software first.
