    Faulty disk?

    dunno why it isn't readable but a slew of questions:

    is it an NI issued disk?

    What kind of computer are you on (can always help to know)?

    Tried a different USB cable/port?

    If connecting via a Hub have you tried connecting direct?

    Have you tried to just install Native Access, login to your account and install things that way (no disk needed)?

    @Twintelemusic Have you tried to open Native Access yet? Do you get an error message from Native Access ? From your Mac ? Can you post a screenshot then?

    I have resolved the issue of loading the disk to my desktop. But now the disk is empty. It is a native instrument issues external drive. Komplete 12 series. and yes native access is open and updated. I have tried different usb ports and even different computers. This is the first time i am running into this problem in the 4 years I had it. if by chance it was erased I have no idea how to re-install the software except for the native access download option but that wont work for me either.
