From Start menu, point to Run, type in: regedit
just type in regedit in the search box when you click on the Start menu.
Navigate to the key:
Find a sub key inside that is named "StorageDevicePolicies". If it does not exist there then we need to make it. Right click on "Control" key -> New -> Key. Name it "StorageDevicePolicies" without quotes.
Now right click on this newly created key and then click New -> DWORD value and name it as "WriteProtect".
Double click this key to modify and give it a value 0. The value 1 in here means to enable it, while the value 0 is the opposite to disable it.

Click Ok button to save and exit Registry Editor.
