    There a way you can find on the web to add files to an install disk I had this problem once, and got it solved, unfortunately it took 45 minutes for me to edit many many files to get it to work, because I was such a noob, let me see what I can find.

    Don't know if this is the same reason but your problem sounds identical to the situation you'd find if you tried to access the System Volume Information on your current drive partition (normally it is set to keep you out and you see file size 0)

    1. Select the folder and right click for Properties
    2. Select Security tab
    3. Check if your userid is defined and if permissions are assigned giving the id access to the folder

    Hey Omega!

    Are you sure you are using a USB 2.0 cable?
