Question about LaCie 500GB USB 2.0 7200 RPM 8MB 500 GB Hard Drive
I have been using my LaCie External Harddrive as my backup since last November, and is working fine until now. The harddrive has all of a sudden become read-only even though I am the only user of the computer. I can view all the files in the drive, I just can't write and back up my computer.
Any help would be much appreciated!

That's a very strange occurrence, I agree with you. The good news is
that one of the standard administrative applications included with Mac
OS X will doubtless fix what's happened on your disk, which is that a
folder permission has somehow been messed up.
The program you need is Disk Utility and you can find it in Applications --> Utilities --> Disk Utility. Then simply select the drive you want to fix:

is the scratchy sound coming from inside your lacie or outside ??
it might be a power problem trying to connect to your lacie but unable to find the device or a dirty hard drive the reader arm skipping across the platters you could give your lacie a firm tap on the side to free up the reader arm
click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery are securely seated
if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps
