Would this be of any help..



Click the Windows "Start" button in the task bar. Type "cmd" into the text box and press "Enter" to open your Windows command prompt.

Type "drive:" where "drive" is the drive that you want to change. Press "Enter." This points the prompt to the root of the drive.

Type "attrib -r /d" and press "Enter." This removes the read-only attribute. The "d" switch applies your settings to all subfolders, so the entire drive is edited.

I got a free 64 thing for participating in something or other and I was never able to use it beyond the advertisers bump.
Hope that this is not case here.

Works for me.

The DR give me a link to software to sort it, but it fails straight away, saying disk is write protected.
