In general you can't remove files from a CD or DVD. If you meant hard drive or USB drive then yes you can remove files from it 

Have you tried this?

When you right-click there and go to Properties there is a Security tab where you can modify some security permissions 

Also there is a registry key you may want to look up 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies
