My Hdd 1tb usb is not showing anymore on explorer. In computer management, its shows its unallocated and not initialized. Every time I try to initialize it, its says " media write protected" I can't formated because I can't Initialize it .
Is anyone having the same problem.
Any suggestion will be good. Thanks

I tried what you said, it is already set on "0". Even thought I tried it and restart the computer. It's still write protect.
Thanks for the help.
