I have a problem with my hard drive in my camera, for some reason i can't copy files from the computer, to the disk in the camera.

This is the kind of basic functionality i would expect. So i would like to assume its a problem with the USB or something like that.

Whenever i try to create data on the drive, it just tells me that its "write protected", and that i should remove the protection.

The error it gives is clearly wrong, unless I'm mistaken. So any idea what else might be wrong? It would have been a very convenient way to transfer a few files, until i bother to buy another external hard drive.
