As you can guess, this is a permissions problem.  Here, it makes a difference if you have XP Home or Pro you have to safe boot mode to change permissions in the House.

My crystal ball says that your external drive is formatted with the NTFS file system.  When you connected to Windows 7 (or any other computer besides), the files have been added that this user permissions apparently understood that only Win 7 has access to.  There are several ways to handle this...

Is to save on all your files and reformat the external hard drive with a FAT32 file system and then support files.  You will have no problems of permissions with FAT32, but you can't have any higher than 4 GB single file either.

Another way is as an administrator, to 'Ownership' of all the files on the disk
"How appropriate a file or a folder in Windows XP"
   <>http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/308421 >
but this could get old if the drive moves back.

Yet another approach is to give "Everyone" full access to everything on the drive.  This may or may not protect against new folders or files added, but may be worth a try:
As a user administrator, open a command window:
Start-> Run-> "cmd".
Then, enter the command:
CACLS E:\/t/e/c/g everyone: F
(where I am assuming that your external drive is mounted as "E:" - change of real player)

I hope that something more top is useful...

  • Cannot access the drive HARD Toshiba PX1267E - 1 32 - file ONSPCCH.ini problem

    I have a Toshiba PX1267E - 32 1 external hard drive as well. It was working fine with my Vista Home Premium OS and has all my data backup on it. It has been password protected.

    My desktop HARD drive failed last week and was replaced and an old recovery disc of 12 months used to rebuild.

    I then tried to access the external HARD disk to restore the backup I ran the day before the accident, but when I enter the password (that I know is certainly correct) I get the same error as others posting here. He suggested that the input data does not match the information contained in the ONSPCCH.ini file.

    I can't disable or change the password as will erase all the data on the external HARD drive. The previous messages direct me on the site of Toshiba, but the options to download an updated driver is no longer correspond to the options available online.

    Help, please! :-(

  • 'Cannot open file because the disk is not available' Mac

    I recently changed the selection of Photoshop (CS6) Scratch disk to the boot drive by default to one of the other internal drives in my MacPro (OS 10.6.8).

    When I restart Photoshop (CS6) I get the message:

    "Cannot open file because the disk is not available"

    and Photoshop will not start.

    I then restart Photoshop with 'Control - alt - shift' keys

    (suggestion to <http://forums.adobe.com/message/3937003>)

    and reset preferences that allows Photoshop to return.

    (Reset preferences returned the boot drive to drive work status.)

    I have an another MacPro, the - same 10.6.8 OS and Adobe CS6 - and I don't have this problem of allocation of work disk.

    What happens with a MacPro which prevents me from selecting one drive other than the boot drive working Photoshop

    Probably a permission problem.  Run the Apple disk utility to repair permissions.  If this does not work the glance to the non bootable drive and check "Ignore permissions..."  Open the window Info Finder and it came inside.

    Hi MarkBerri,

    ·         How long have you been faced with this problem?

    Svchost.exe is a process name generic host for services that run from dynamic link (dll) libraries. The Svchost.exe file is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. At startup, Svchost.exe checks the registry services part in order to build a list of services that it needs to load. Multiple instances of Svchost.exe can run at the same time. Each Svchost.exe session can contain a grouping of services. Therefore, separate services can run, depending on how and where Svchost.exe is started. This grouping of services enabling better control and easier debugging.

    Svchost.exe groups are identified in the following registry key:
