    Sorry I haven't gotten back to you before now, lot of things going on here.  My Seagate Manager does not save things that way.  It will ask you what you want to save, i.e., files, folders, photos, music, videos, etc., and you just click on those things and it saves them all, doesn't pick out one in particular.  Now, I have plugged it into my husband's laptop to put the pictures on that and it doesn't do it. I'm thinking it's because he has Windows 7, mine is Vista, and I don't think he has Windows Photo Gallery, it's some other Photo thing.  I will look and see.  It did transfer some stuff to the laptop, don't remember what right now as it was a while ago.  I will try to look in the next few days and report to you what I find out.  I will try to put the photos on his machine again.  Thanks!

    I realize that the instructions that I gave you is not the same as the Seagate Manager but if you can't save files to the ext. drive using the method I've described it will mean that there is something not quite correct with the ext. drive.

      well, that's one solution I hadn't thought about. Keep safe.
