I'm actually getting pretty desperate now so I would appreciate any advice. Please bear in mind that I am not really knowledgeable about technical terms, etc. so step by step advice would be much appreciated
It began when i burned some work onto a dvd, as normal, but when I tried to drag and drop this data onto another Mac a white 'no entry sign' appeared and I could not do anything with it It is possible to drag more than one item but always one will be left behind. Very frustrating. Never done this before...
So I ended up using the repair disk permissions function in Disk Utility on my macbook pro.
Now for some reason the CD/DVD still doesn't work as before and I cannot connect to external hard-drives via usb or firewire. My iPod charges but does not connect to iTunes.
When I put my external hard drive in, error messages come up saying various .kext files were not installed properly. I've tried to look at the permissions, but they all say Read & Write. This is only for the usb/firewire port....I have no clue about the DVD issue.
PLEASE PLEASE help me i've got work to hand in to uni this week and i can't get it off my computer!!
My MacBook Pro is
System Version: Mac OS X 10.4.11
Kernel Version: Darwin 8.11.1
