Hi Solomonsenja,

Connect your external drive and run the Command Prompt as an Administrator. Type the following command:

Diskpart
List Disk
Select disk n (n must be the drive number)
Attributes disk clear readonly
Exit

This way you should be able to clean the write protection. Open Disk Management and try to format the drive.

Hope this helps
