It may be that the disks are mounted read only. Run 'mount' from a terminal. What does it show you?

When you run mount command with parameters, it exits with an error message if there's a problem, but without any errors if there's a success. In my previous post I was writing about simply running 'mount', without any parameters. it should show you a list of your mounted partitions (minimum one - root) with their mount options.
