Default Sharing Internet access via laptop wireless access point

My USB Drive sometimes auto mounts as a read-only file system on Ubuntu 7.10 i386 desktop.* This does not happen frequently, but when it does, it means I can't update any files on the drive.* How do I switch it to a read-write file system?* Is there something I can do to keep it from being mounted as read-only?

I have tried unmounting it and inserting it into another USB port, with the same results.* I am going to reboot my desktop* to see if I can resolve this issue.* If that fails, I intend to copy all the files off the USB drive, format it (as FAT32), and then restore the files.
