In dire need of help

Alrighty, so here's the scoop. I do recording on an iMac, while keeping all my audio files on an external 500GB WD Passport.
I've had no problems up until today. I've been saving, opening, bouncing files to the disk, all without a problem. Today I opened up one of my files to bounce it down (basically take all the audo tracks and "bounce" them to a stereo 2-track so it can be played on any system), and when I give it the location on the Passport, it tells me "Passport For Mac is not an audio drive".
Now whenever I go to save anything, it's telling me my Passport is a read-only device. AFAIK it's NEVER been read-only, as this is the first time something like this hhas happened. Now I can't save to the Passport, change files, etc. It's almost like it's locked.
I haven't messed about with any settings, so if anybody knows wtf going on, help would be appreciated.
Edit: Checked in the Disk Utility, apparently it can't Verify the disk because it can't be ejected. Hope this helps.
Edit 2: Problem solved, nevermind. Mods close this.

How about posting the solution just in case someone else runs into the same issues?
