When I try to drag & drop files from my C:\ onto my Mac hard drive (I use MacDrive for HFS support), Windows reports:

Interrupted Action

Can’t read from the source file or disk


  • Windows 8 Professional x64
  • MacDrive
  • Mac OS X 10.8.2
  • MacBook Pro 2009

I assume you've checked the source drive already for errors? – Karan Nov 4 '12 at 16:57
What filesystem is your Windows 8 drive running? – Django Reinhardt Nov 6 '12 at 20:19

Windows 8 uses new hardware drivers, which appear to MacDrive as if the whole computer is new, requiring reactivation.

Upon reactivating MacDrive with my same old serial number, drag & drop and editing Mac drive functionality was restored.
