Grsynch errors

I have a 160GB USB drive called SEA_DISK for backups using Grsynch.  The last 
week or two I've been getting the following errors - I think - on every file 
needing to be changed:

rsync: mkstemp "/media/SEA_DISK/dataDocs2/nle/MW26/.wALK 26.xls.1uKVFl" 
failed: Read-only file system (30)


rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 
23) at main.c(1060) [sender=3.0.7]
Rsync process exit status: 23

After running Grsynch I can't write to SEA_DISK using Dolphin until I turn off 
the drive and turn it back on.

About the same I time, I think, Safely remove 'SEA_DISK' on the Dolphin drop-
down also quit working.

I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 but the same thing happened when I tried 10.04.

Any ideas?
