I use an external hard drive to backup my computer to. It's always been reliable.
A few days ago I tried to copy some of the backup files to another external hard drive I got from work. This operation failed (I think there's something wrong with and "Acess Denied" tp that latter drive half way through copying).
Now I cannot delete or copy files from the first, normally reliable drive. I've tried plugging the drive into two different computers running Linux and both reported the same problem
I *can* however write a file to the drive and delete it.

Also, Clonezilla started from a live DVD seems to be able to write to it.

I have no idea what is wrong with the drive, but here is the output of "mount" with the drive plugged in. The drive is sdg1 "Elements":
