    Hi,
    I am in possession of a DUNE HD DUO (top device).
    I also bought 2 x Western Digital Caviar Green hard drives each with 2 TB.
    Both hard drives formatted in DUNE (works with EXT2, Linux).
    Through the network I can from my PC files on both hard drives places.
    Have now created the possibility that I with E-Sata hard drives directly to the PC and transfer the files (going a bit (much) faster).
    It shows on my PC (in the background) a rotating "Ext2 Volume Manager" utility (works excellent).
    But in one of the two hard drives is not possible to transfer data, it shows "DISK IS WRITE TO Secured".
    -What could cause this are:
    -What can a solution:

    Who can help me?
    MG.

    Maybe your drive's permission isn't set to write. But I have a problem with it.  I've set option for write as default but when I connect this external drive to PC then permission for write isn't set.
