Follow this procedure to edit the registry entry for write protection on portable usb devices:

Go to Start > Run > type ‘regedit’ (without the speachmarks) > Enter
- Single-click on ‘My Computer’ > File > Export > save it to the Desktop (Always best to have a backup!!)
- Go to the following:
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDeviceP olicies
*There seems to be some spaces here in 'StorageDevicePolicies' in the text above, there shouldn't be, OK*
- Double click on the string ‘WriteProtect’ and change the ‘Value Data’ box to ‘0’
- Then: File > Export > save somewhere useful as something like ‘StorageDevicePolicies001.reg’
- You also need to do this for the strings in any folders called ‘ControlSet***’ (* = any Digit, i.e. 001, 002) – for example: Everything is the same, just change ‘CurrentControlSet’ to ‘ControlSet***’
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\StorageDevicePolic ies
*There seems to be some spaces here in 'StorageDevicePolicies' in the text above, there shouldn't be, OK*
- Save these to the same place as before as ‘StorageDevicePolicies00*’

The saves are in case it reverts at a later date, just double click (saying ‘yes’ to importing these to the registry) on all of the files and it will all work again! Ad

Run diagnostics on the drive it may be failing. If it's ok you can try to reformat it from Windows Disk Management.

Or if you need to recover data for remote data recovery and do-it-yourself data recovery see http://FreeDataRecovery.us

Formating harddrive doesnt mean you already lost your data. It is being converted into binary file so there is possible to recover. The problem is you need to buy a data recovery to recover all the data lost in your harddrive.

I can help you but you need to buy the recovery for $99.00. Gurranted money back if the problem did not meet your requirements.
