    I downloaded InstantCake..... I bought it from www.dvrupgrade.com.................

    Problem, when it asked me if I am ready to clear my drive I hit y and hit enter...

    /dev/hdc: Read-only file system
    Restore failed: Unable to open destination device for writing.
    tpip: error opening /dev/hdc: Read-only file system

    Cannot continue -- Process aborted

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    NOTES: I formated the drive with fat32 before I put it in this computer.... could that be the problem????

    Where are your drives connected? It sounds like hdc might be your CD drive.

    When I go to BIOS it says this a little down the way........

    Primary Drive 0 ...................... Hard Drive
    Primary Drive 1 ...................... Off
    Secondary Drive 0 .................... CD-ROM Reader
    Secondary Drive 1 .................... Off

    :confused: :confused: :confused:

    Also... like I said... I formatted the drive I am trying to use in FAT32 earlier...

    Based on your list above, hdc was the CD drive. When you swapped cables, the CD was moved to hda and the hard drive moved to hdc.
