  1. Remove the write protection using diskpart commands in the command prompt window -- open it with a right click run as administrator. Here are the commands in the order that you need to use them:

    diskpart
    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 if it was.

    Here is a page that lists all the diskpart command syntax: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc770877%28v=ws.10%29.aspx
