    Followed all instructions, however whenever I try to make a change to the either of the 2 HDs I attached the the iUSBport2 (create a new folder, copy a file to the HD, delete a file on the HD) a Finder alert pops up saying "Finder wants to make changes. Type your password to allow this. I tried my Mac's username and password, I tried leaving it blank, nothing works.

    What's the username and password? Am I missing something?

    More information: after entering in an attempted username and password it obviously is rejected and tells me I don't have the necessary permissions.
