hi there,

first you need to remove the write protection

follow these steps:

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
