I have a freshly installed Win 2003 domain controller with that cannot have the read only taken off all files on c d and e drives . I have reset permissions removed read only tick(which is grayed out as if it is inheriting it from somewhere)I have formatted d and e and copied files back over still the same, when you take the tick out of read only box and apply it goes through and looks like it works but then when you check again after exiting sharing tab and going back in the tick reappears.
I did relocate  the f: drive after the install and put it into antother machine leaving me with one drive c d and e I dont know if this was the issue

Even when I add an additional external Usb drive it is still the same (read only)

Do you have that for folders only, or for files as well? If the former, that's by design and nothing to really worry about:
You Cannot View or Change the Read-Only or System Attribute of Folders

For anyones reference. This has happened to me twice now. Both times It has been caused by similar incidents.
The first time was when a large capacity hard drive was installed into the Server using a different interface to the exsiting hard drives ie Scsi then a Serial Ata drive was added.
The second time was Ultra 320 drives then I temorarily added an Ultra 160 and an Ide drive to transfer data from the old server.
Permissions had been reset to default, What a pain but what an easy fix though.
