Write Protected Hard Drive

  The Rhino 23:00 25 Nov 2008

I keep an external 80GB USB Hard Drive for back ups etc

When I tried to do my latest back up I am getting the message 'Drive is write protected'

As I have never (knowingly) set up write protection (dont even know how) I am now stuck.
I have tried to format but again it comes back with the same message.

Any advice please
