I have a seagste freeagent conected to a dual 1.8 power mac via USB.
Running mac os 10.5.

Recently the drive switches to write only and will not let me change it in 'get info' it has worked fine for ages but now this.
To fix it I have to turn off the drive and turn it on again. Then works fine for a while but then does it again.

Any help on a fix would be great.

I would try running Verify and Repair permissions in Disk Utility.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
