I've just had the same problem. In my case it was caused by a powered USB hub, removing the hub solved the problem. This error is usually from faulty hardware OR faulty hardware Drivers.

Try Select "Run" or "Search" depending on your operating system.

At the command prompt.

Type "Lock sys: off" to unlock c: drive .

If you are wanting to lock or unlock another drive then simply replace "sys" with the drive letter (i.e. Lock D: on).
