-estwrite- uses Mata to write it's files (unless you use Stata 8 or
specify the -estsave- option). Maybe Mata has problems writing to the
portable HD. Try something like

mata
fn = "test.txt"
fh = fopen(fn, "w")
fput(fh, "whatever")
flose(fh)
end

or

mata
X = 1
mata matsave test X
end

Does this work?
