Hi Brett.

Glad you got this far.

I'm afraid that you've gone beyond the extent of my knowledge on MacOS.

The oly thing that I can suggest is to make sure that it has been mounted as 
HPFS. To do this just execute :


all on its little lonesome.

If it is not HPFS, then change the first "auto" in the line to "hpfs" and see 
if that solves the problem.

Otherwise, as I say - I have no clues... :-(

Good luck
