Even if you did make it read-only, it surely could not function as there are too many temporary files created during normal usage which could not be written to that partition if it was read-only.

If you want to make the hdd more secure perhaps you might consider applying a password to it. If you do add a password, be absolutely certain you keep a permanent and secure record of that password as if you lose it you may well never be able to access the drive without spending a lot of money.

Hope that helps
