Hi
I have a flash drive that says it is write protected. I have tried using regedit and cmd to remove the protection but nothing works. I cannot format the drive as it says it can't due to it being write protected. I have never set it to be write protected and it doesn't have the write protection switch on the drive itself. I have checked it for viruses and nothing.

Can you tell me if there is any other way to remove the protection?

Thanks
Brenda
