Follow these tuts to proceed :

The write-protected external drive is from where?

This disk has been write-protected by someone for a reason.

Since proof-of-ownership is an impossibility over forum communications, then I can not be of assistance.

I suggest you take the external drive to a computer repair shop in your area.
