Two ways available:

Either make a registry key edit ( ) or use diskpart:

Open the command prompt box with right click and run as administrator

Type each of these commands one at a time in this order:
list volume
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.
