it might not even be with protools and just the external HD i have. and im not super saavy with computers. BUT! when i try and start a new session or open up a session saved on my external HD it wont open it. for instance when i try and open a session...it says "this session is saved on a volume set to 'transfer' only. if permitted set the volume(s) in question to playback or record inthe workspace." and if i try and open a new session...it say "it must be on an audio record volume" im probably just an ass who cant figure out a simple problem so go easy on me haha.
