Hi,
Can you go to Computer>Right Click>Properties>Security and check that you have full access to the partition.

If you do and it still does not work you could try this tutorial.
Take Ownership of file - Vista Forums

Also,in disc management>control panel>amin tools>computermanagement>Disk Management (bottom left) and make sure the disc is a primary partition and that it also has a drive letter (im guessing it does).
