hi there,

to remove write protection use follow these steps:

open registry

press start>

run>type regedit and 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 value to 0

Thanks
