Thank you
A failed drive often display's a false "write protected" message.

Thank you
Hi,

Can you please elaborate your question so we can provide you with the best possible answer.

does the system recognize your drive?

or you are only unable to access your drives data.

Please clear what’s the exact issue you are facing now.

Have you tried to edit registry

Just press Windows + R and type regedit and then enter

and navigate to the following path

Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\System\CurrentControlSet\Policies

After this, do double click on the writeprotect key and set the 0 value and click ok

Once you complete this process, restart your system and check whether the issue resolved.

This only works when all flash drive have the identical problem. I suggest you try the drive on multipal computers. Sometime a Linux computer will read drives that a Windows computer can not.
