can you access regedit storage device policy?if not follow this...

You could disable the write protection as below:
1. Plunge this drive or memory card to a computer. (Of course, you should use a card Reader to connect your memory card.)
2. Click "Start" on the taskbar to open "Run" and type in "regedit".
3. Hit "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" to expand "System".
4. Find "Current Control Set" in "System" list to click "Control".
5. Check whether there is a key named "Storage Device Policies" to change the digit in the "DWORD value" box into "0" and press "OK".
But, if you cannot find the key named "Storage Device Policies", you are supposed to create a one: right click "Control" to create a new key and name it as "Storage Device Policies"=> right click this new key to open "DWORD Value" and name it as "write protect"=> Double click it to change number.
or
