Question HD not writeable after few minutes


I got this really weird problem with one of my HD's.
For only a few minutes i have full permission to read and write...then it tells me it's a read only disk when i want to delete or copy a file.

I havn't changed my fstab or anything for like a year, it always used to work perfectly untill 2 weeks ago.
This is the line in my's the same as all my other HD's (but then other dev and mount folder ofcourse)

/dev/hdc1 /mnt/vfat vfat uid=500,gid=500,umask=000,exec,dev,suid,rw 1 0

All the others work perfectly...
I was thinking maybe a hardware problem, but i get no error in winblows.

Anyone got an idea why it does this?

over heating?

Set your fstab to 1 1
you have it at 1 0

Well, i just set it at 1 1 and i just get a lot of fixes and whatever in the start up.
That kinda freaked me out.

But still the same...after a minute or 2 i still can't delete anything.
And could overheating actually make it do that?
