    Drives have suddenly become write protected




      I've been working on a project for about a week now in CS5 Premiere Pro.  Yesterday I shutdown my computer and now my Lacie external hard drive which contains the project file and all media cache files, is showing up write protected.  Premiere will not allow me to connect to the drive.  I tried turning off indexing on the drive, but it says I don't have permission.  I noticed under the drives properties that all of the folders say READ ONLY.  If I try to change it I get the same error.  I am the computers administrator, and I've never had this problem before.  Any ideas on how I can get the drive to let me write to it and connect it back up with Premiere?  Thanks!
