Hello,
When I Format my USB any time messaging that "The disk is write protected"
I already complete your solution of this formula format
1. insert the pendrive
2. dont open or format it directly
3. right click on my computer and go to manage
4.in computer managment window click on disk managment option
5. right click on the removable disk (i,h....)
6. select format
But my USB is not Format. When Formatting is complete 100% again messaging that "The operation did not complete because the media is write protected". How can I format my USB please help me sir .
7. After your guide i download HDDLLF.4.25.EXE FILE AND RUN AS FREE. BUT FOUND "Error opening device: the process can not access the file because it is being used by another process"

Kindly solve the problem

Beat Regards,

Click start

go to this directory HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Currentcontrolset\control\
if you can't find StorageDevicePolicies under control folder
then make some new one. Follow this steps:

again and right click control folder

step 2:
select new, then click key and rename the new key #1 folder into
StorageDevicePolicies

step 3:
right click StorageDevicePolicies folder and select new DWORD(32-bit) Value
for 32-bit Operating System and select new DWORD(64-bit) Value
for 64-bit Operating System

step 4:
rename dword newer folder into WriteProtect, then double click WriteProtect
and change the value data into 0 with hexadecimal base, Then close regedit

step 5:
open my computer and refresh it 5 times without do anything to your usb, and
properly eject your flash drive

step 6:
plug in your usb again into your computer and format it using exfat instead of fat32
