[HELP] Can't Initialize Disk ReadOnly

  acejunior 01:58 01 Nov 14

so i converted my old internal hard drive to an external hard drive however its not showing up on My Computer, so i went to the device management console thinking that i just need to assign a drive letter for it , however the disk is labeled as Not initialized, tried right clicking on it to initialized disk but it im getting an error saying its right protected, tried right clicking the unallocated disk but the options new simple volume etc. are all greyed out , so i tried using diskpart in cmd to remove the write protection but im getting an error saying diskpart faild to remove attributes etc etc. any idea what i should do?

Type of drive sata or IDE? if IDE then need to be set as Master

It sounds as it has Windows still on it then you will get problems. Boot up and get to desktop. Connect your old C:\ drive via USB. Check My computer (My PC). Should show up there as an USB/Drive device. Right click and select properties. Format it to NTFS.
