1) Open a command prompt by typing "cmd" into the Start menu's Run or Search box.

2) type "diskpart"

3) type: "select disk 1"

4) type: "attributes disk clear readonly"


Your screen should look like this:

C:\>DISKPART
DISKPART>SELECT DISK 1

Disk 1 Selected.

DISKPART>ATTRIBUTES DISK CLEAR READONLY

Disk attributes cleared successfully.


5) type: "exit"
