The disk is write-protected (Windows 7 randomly turns this on and off)

Not sure why, but every now and then I run across this issue. Thought I would share as there are very few actual pages that explain how to fix this. Most solutions on the internet do not fix this issue.

Do the following:

Start Run "cmd"
type: diskpart
type: list volume
type: select volume #
type: attributes disk clear readonly
OR
type: attributes volume clear readonly

Thats it!
