Question about Computers & Internet
Somehow my drive now will not let me write to it. It tells me that is "READ ONLY" and I haven't, knowingly done anything to cause that. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
Try formatting it from the command prompt.
the command line is 'format drive' . drive is the corresponding drive letter.
