Read-Only Prompt

I am currently using AutoCAD Landesktop 2009;

Our company recently upgraded to Window Professional 7, and before when we would open an AutoCAD dwg that was being used, we would get a promp saying the file was being used.  Now the file opens wihtout prompts or problems, however if you miss it at the top it will say "Read-only".  We have had issues were two people are working on the same file yet only one person has the live dwg. 


I am wondering if there are some settings in AutoCAD that would allow for the propmt to return. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
