Hello,

I have a problem with my USB flash drive. It is a DT50 from Kingston 32 GB and it's stuck on write protection. I tried everything. I also followed regedit thing, the disk 1 with the attributes and most of the repair/format programs. Till so far, nothing has worked!

Please help!

Here is a different way from step 3:
  • Click start
  • then run regedit
  • 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:
  • step 1: go to this directory
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Currentcontrolset\control\
    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
