Hello,

I have a pendrive that has got write protect?? on it.
As advised I tried using Regedit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies
But now there is no "Write protect" for me to reset to "0"

What should be done?

sometimes when a flash drive is damaged it will show as "write protected"

In this case any global change to the Registry will NOT fix the problem with this specific device.

I suspect the drive is unusable.

Good Luck
