Hello,

I followed the instructions on how to remove write protection to my usb flash drive but after I set the value of the "Writeprotect" key to 0, my usb icon stopped showing in the "My Computer" folder, and now it doesn't work in my or any other PC. I tried to uninstall the drives from Device manager but no result.

Other usb devices work on the same port, so something happened with that particular device.

Please help me.

If the flash drive does not work on multiple computers. I suspect it has failed and needs to be replaced.

Good luck
