Hello

Just follow the instruction hereunder:

. Open Start Menu
2. Run, type regedit and press Enter, this will open the registry editor.
3. Navigate to the following path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies

4. Double click the key WriteProtect in the right pane and set the value to 0 In the Value Data Box and press OK button

5.Exit Registry

6. Restart your computer and re-connect your USB pen drive on your computer.

Hello Amar

If you could not find the above, there is nothing else that can remove the write protection. Your pendrive can only be discarded.

Sorry
it's not working
