Hello,
please help me. My Lacie Hard drive suddenly wants Format and nothing works. I can not access files. When I try format, it says it can not complete operation because it is write protected. In disk management Windows 7 shows Disk 2 unallocated. Can I keep the files on the drive somehow? How can I format it removing the write protection?
I would be greatful for some pointers.

First check the hard drive for any switches that can be for write protection, if not there then we may need to reformat it as it may be corrupt
