Whenevr I try to copy something to the drive or try to format it, an error occurs stating that the disc is write-protected, remove write protection or use another disc.

Unable to format the cruser pendrive

Far too often these little things have an almost invisible read/write protect button on them. Look carefully, over the entire surface of the USB Flash Drive. You might have this switch turned to Write Protect, which means there is nothing you can do, until you turn it the other way, and allow the device to be written to.

Remove Write Protection

Try this,
Check out if the USB drive has a small swich for write protection. If its there try toggling the switch.

Windows can all write protect flash drives. Check out this registry path,


You may find a key here on the right side by the name 'WriteProtect'. If it's not there this would not be the cause of problem. If it's there, make sure that the value is 0.

Please let me know if this does'nt work.

Removing write protection of USB pen drive

if u format ur pen drive. then use this step
Check out the registry under:

1)click on start button
2)clik on run dialog box
3)type regedit
4) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies.
The value 'WriteProtect' should be absent or set to '0' and when you try to format it you have to format it as FAT16

Good Luck!!
