    Did you previously put a password on this file?

        Have you tried copying the file from the computer harddrive to the external?

          Is it just office docs or can you not save any kind of files to the external?

            Sounds like a permissions issue. Try right clicking on the Iomega in My Computer and clicking on properties. I think there should be a Security tab to set read/write access.

              So, are you saying you can't save a Word file directly to the iomega external hard drive but you can copy the Word to the iomega external hard drive once you've saved it to your internal hard drive?
