1. Open a Command prompt by clicking Start, typing command, and clicking Command Prompt.
2. Type diskpart and press Enter.
3. Type list volume and press Enter.
4. Type select volume #, where # is the number of the drive that's giving you the "write-protected" error. In my case, I ended up typing select volume 3.
5. Type attributes disk clear readonly and press Enter.
6. Type exit and press Enter.
and many more
Easiest way is to use Windows dispart in the command prompt window.
Open the command prompt box with right click and run as administrator
Type each of these commands one at a time in this order:
select volume n (where n = the problem volume)
attributes disk clear readonly
attributes volume clear readonly
After each of the last two you should get a response that it was successful.
Your drive should now be both read and write capable.
