Anytime a flash drive, mouse, keyboard, or any USB device it wants administrator rights. Very annoying in a lab situation where everyone has a different flash drive.


A user with an administrator account will probably have to edit the policies of the machine by in the run box entering gpedit.msc, you will be looking for usb device policies or device installation policies. I am not sure of the exact policy that you will have to change, since windows by default doesn't ask for administrator rights to use flash drives.

click start control panel user accounts click on the administrators account if you have made one or you will have to create one in windows XP

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.

- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions

My Kingston 4 GB Pen Drive became Write Protected.


Write Protection on any portable USB Device can be applied by the physical lock provided on the card adjuster or some times provided on the pen drives, so make sure to make your drive not write protected by moving the lock in right direction.
But even after moving the physical lock for write protection the problem can happen due to some virus action. This happens when some virus or script which applies the registry hack to make any drive write protect when connected to the computer, In that case follow the procedure below to remove write protection from your pen drive.
1. Open Start Menu >> Run, type reg edit and press Enter, this will open the registry editor.
2. Navigate to the following path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies

Note: If the registry key Storage Device Policies key does not exist, you will need to create it
Download this batch file called add.bat from here, and double click after download the key will be automatically added to registry.

3. Double click the key Write Protect in the right pane and set the value to 0 in the Value Data Box and press OK button

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time
