if you are using windows as your operating system then follow these steps below
1.click on start
2.click on run and then write regedit or regedit32 in run window
3.next it will open a new window's which is Registry editor
locate HkEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENT CONTROL SET\CONTROL
4. Locate sub key storage device policies and then locate Dword value Write protect for disabling write protection you have to set value to 0 if it's 1 there !!!!
USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value. click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine. # Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual. also If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:
- click start right click on my computer select open - Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something) - Click Properties in the menu that comes up - Click the Sharing tab - Click permissions - And finally, click Allow next to Full Control. hope this helps
4 different ways how to eventually solve this problem: 1) Try a program Thumbscrew (http://www.irongeek.com/i.php?page=security/thumbscrew-software-usb-write-blocker) which switches storage devices' write protection on or off. 2) Or do the same thing manually, by go to Start > Run > type "regedit" > Ok HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies\WriteProtect Value 1 is for "on" and 0 for "off". 3) Plug the USB hard driver in different USB slots on your computer, maybe one of them is faulty. 4) Disable the Disk Write Caching of the relevant USB hard disk drive:
Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
Click the Hardware tab.
Click Device Manager.
Click the plus sign (+) next to the Disk Drives branch to expand it.
Right-click the drive on which you want to enable or disable disk write caching, and then click Properties.
Click the Disk Properties tab.
Click to select or clear the Write Cache Enabled check box as appropriate.
I assume the computer recognizes a mass storage device on USB is plugged in and appropriate drivers are loaded. Try on a different computer with appropriate drivers, restart existing computer and plug it in after computer starts. If still fails dismantle device and remove hard disk and try directly in another enclosure. Cannot provide further info without more information.
The answer is Yes. You can recover lost data from USB with data recovery program. CardData Recovery can recover data from all camera flash memory cards includingCompact Flash Card (CF), Smart Media Card, Secure Digital Card (SD),Multi-Media Card (MMC), XD Picture Card (XD), Micro Drive, Sony Memory Stick(Duo, Pro), as well as removable storage including Zip disk, USB drives andHard drives. Recovery of files is also possible even when drive has beenformatted.
A lot of NEWER SimpleTech drives have some new technology called NDAS (NetDisk Attached StoragE), which eliminates the need for IP addresses on a network. Its highly secure and very hard to find, unless you have the software available for it.
Download these drivers and you should be able to get to your stuff. Good luck and have a great day!
Gather and connect all necessary connecting cables. You need an Ethernet cable to go from the box linking the hard drive to your wireless router in one of the open ports on the back of your wireless router, and a USB cord connecting your external drive to the storage link box (unless you are using a flash memory device or stick drive).Power up the devices. Make sure your Internet connection Is working and that the storage device is working properly.Insert the Setup CD into your computer. Follow the instructions and install any necessary utilities for the specific type of external drive you are using. Configure the storage link. During setup you should have been given the option to secure the device with a login name and password. Open the device and log in. Make any changes you want to on the storage device, but if you aren't sure what specific changes you want to make to the default settings, leave the default settings alone to avoid creating problems.
