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

unfortunatelly i had the same problem with my DT50 32gb usb 3.0... i tried everything but no solution.... i asked a friend of mine and he said that my usb was dead.. it burned unfortunatelly. When you can't get any solution (from all this methods cmd etc., that you tried) this means that was burned and he said that when the usb was burned you can see your files on your usb but you can't copy, transfer, delete or do any format.....check your warranty from the store you get your usb and ask for refund.

I ran the DISKPART too, it didn't work. I ran the Command Prompt with administrative rights, the ran the CHKDSK command before Format my drive. When I tried to format it had to unmounts the device but it worked. It took almost an hour but worked for me.
