Try removing the read-only attribute in diskpart (even it does not show as read-only)

1. Open the command prompt.
2. Type DISKPART
3. LIST VOLUME (to identify the volume in question)
4. SELECT VOLUME # (where # represents the volume identifier)
5. ATTRIBUTES VOLUME CLEAR READONLY

Verifiy if you can now write to the disk, also verify after rebooting.
