hi there,

follow these steps:


Get into the Registry - Press Start -> Run, enter regedit, press Ok

Click on My Computer.


Then press File -> Export, give some file name to backup the registry.

Just in case you ever need to rollback.

.go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/StorageDevicePolicies

In the right pane select "writeprotect"

RESET the value to '0'

Thanks
