May we have some specifics on the removable disk, such as the make and model of it or any other applicable descriptions?

i had this problem last year with one of my flash drives, not a GXT though.
I went to my computer, right clicked the drive, clicked properties, went to the security tab, and gave myself full control.

it worked for me, so maybe give that a try
