ReadOnlyMounter... This System Preference pane is a driver and a loader to mount USB flash memory, USB HDD and FireWire HDD as read-only device. When a device is mounted by this driver, Mac OS X recognizes it as read-only. In other words, this software works as if a write-protect switch of a device. And the driver does not care the format of device, so it works for not only HFS but also FAT. I made this software to protect the digital camera memory from .DS_Store.

You can set read-only on media with workgroup manager on OS X Server - via the pref editor (plist).
So for a client version of OS X, I guess this pref would simply toggle to access privileges set within the plist?
