After copying a lot of data to external drive and watching several avi and one mkv file, using windows media player classic, I cannot copy to the drive anymore files of any sizes, while I have about 200 megs of free space left. I get the following error "Cannot copy filename: Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use." Anyone knows whats wrong? I am sure it is Window's issue, I just don't know what. I did try unplugging the drive and cold booting.
