    External Hard Drive (Lacie 16 GB Key) just changed to read only.

    I've tried all the recommendations, it won't let me change anything in Get Info. In Disk Utility I Verified the disk and it's fine but everything else is grayed out. I tried a few commands in Terminal, it doesn't recognize the drive. Restarting, rebooting, still nothing. Should I assume it's shot?

    If still in warranty, give LaCie a call and get it replaced after copying all the data you have on it, if valuable. Do it while still readable.
