First try to see is there any lock in your usb pen drive and see if its not locking the pen drive, because some pen drives comes with that option to protect usb .it looks like slide switch .for one end it will lock the media and when you switch to other side you have the full access
but if that's not the reason it might be the problem with registry

Use the Registry Hack to Disable Writing to USB Drives
Here is the link .just download the zip folder and after opening the folder you will find a file just double click on it..

Any software to remove write protection from 2 gb kingston pendrive...its urgent ...my important files in it.


Scan your USB with updated antivirus it might be attacked by a virus. There is no software that can remove that unless there is a switch in your USB drive that locked and unlock your USB drive.

Data traveller 4gb can't remove write protection


There are many reasons that cause this problem, let's see solutions of them.
Solutions:
• First of all try to locate a small switch (if any, that you may have not noticed) at some place on the drive or memory card reader. This is the prime reason for this error. If there is one, switch it to the other side to turn the protection off.
• Yes I know this problem is also occurring these days without this switch but not to worry. Just download this helpful software from here and run it to execute a "low-level format" on the drive. This software is quite handy and may take few attempts to actually remove the error.
• The problem can also be caused by some virus activity so just get it scanned by some updated good anti virus which may solve your problem.
• BUT if none of the methods listed above solves your problem then your pen drive might have gone corrupted, so just get it replaced.
Hope any of the methods listed above solves your problem.
1:
After the low level format, you may need to "Partition the drive". Dont worry, partitioning a pen drive means allocating it its File System and Cluster Size that was lost after the Low Level Format.
For that:
  1. Run diskmgmt.msc in Run.
  2. In the disk management window, select the pen drive, right click on it and click on Format.
  3. Now choose the File System and Allocation Unit Size and do not check the boxes below.
partition_the_pen_drive.jpg Click OK and the drive will be reusable after this.
2

Follow the steps in this post and just put the value 0 (zero) in step 5.
This will surely solve your problem now.
3 Use the tool called Neo 9, using which we can easily rectify this write protection problem.

My pen drive has become write protected and now I want to remove write protection from my pen drive,please help me.


Hi Sir.
Please look carefully at your usb pen-drive to see if there is a small switch on there somewhere that is used to lock and unlock the drive. perhaps you may have accidentally put it in the lock position.
If there is a laser pointer on the drive then using the laser pointer may have caused you to accidentally switch to the write protected mode. most drives have a lock/unlock switch on the pen-drive itself...unless it has a program installed on the drive that has encrypted and locked the drives read/write ability. Please let me know if you have success.
Thank you!

Write protected pendrive


there should be a small thumb guide which will release the lock aspect. looks at the back of package or small instrucion sheet, or go to website for that manufacturer model and use guidance there.
