Select the volume (single click), go to File>Get Info. Uncheck the "locked" checkbox.

By select volume I assume you mean the mac g-3 icon ? I did that, then get info then general info. I do not see a check box?

Then you must mean something other than "locked". What exactly is locked?

That's something else. "locked by hardware" sounds like you have a jumper set on the HD that makes it read only or something.

Have you done any preventative maintenance on it in the last 3 years? Run Norton Disk Doctor, DiskWarrior, etc?

That could explain alot. A little preventative maintenance goes a LONG way. Run NDD AND DiskWarrior.
