hi there,

use the follow 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 incase you ever need to rollback.

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

. In the right pane select "writeprotect"

. RESET the value to '0'

Thanks
