Screen Lock When searching external hard drive?

Jul 12, 2013 10:43 PM

Why would my screen be locking up when I try to access my external hard drive? It shows the folders contained in it, but won't let me scroll down to see the rest or open the folders when clicked on. when I try to use the menu at the top I just get the spinning wheel. I have to force quit to get back to my main hard drive, which works fine.  I'm able to access the folders through lightroom so I feel like the hard drive is not at fault.. Any help or ideas would be greately appreciated

    …and I suspect you want some clairvoyant or mind reader to guess all the details and specs of your setup?

    Just because external works with one program does not mean it works with all programs.  Bridge seems to have problem reading files on the external.  Perhaps trying to read incorrect format?

    Bridge seems to have problem reading files on the external. 

     

     

    And it might be due to an incorrect read write permissions setting or cache related,

     

    Can you provide more details?
