HD problem, all files read only

I first encountered this problem two days ago. I was trying to transfer files to a hard drive on my desktop from and external 80 gig drive to archive to dvd I really did not think to much about it except that i need to get stuff off that drive fast. It happened today when trying to transfer files between computers on a network. all files are doing this.... I got an error message : Cannot create or replace "whatever file.any extension": Access is Denied.
Make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is not currently in use.

Very odd I think. Going to properties, read only is automatically selected, I have not changed any permissions and am running as administrator on windows xp2. when i try to uncheck read only, it comes right back to read only. Any help would be appreciated...I've never had a problem like this

Damn, my woodstove needs stoking
