Windows 7: Media Center write protects disk

Media Center write protects disk

I have been searching a bit and haven't found an answer, kind of tired of reading, so I apologize if this is covered elsewhere ...

Windows Media Center has an unpleasant habit of write protecting my hard drive (2nd hard drive set up primarily for DVR storage). I know I can go into diskpart and clear the read only attribute, but I would really like to figure out why it does it and how to stop it from doing so going forward. All I have been able to find has dealt with removing the write protection, not how to prevent it. And yes, I have full administrative rights to the disk/system
