Hi Kakanyazi,

Try opening the Command Prompt and using the Diskpart command. It should look like this:
diskpart
list volume
select volume n (n should be the number of your drive)
attributes disk clear readonly

Press Enter after every command. Take a look at the article below. It may be helpful.

Hope this helps
