========================================================
PLEASE CREATE A SYSTEM RESTORE POINT BEFORE PROCEEDING !!!
========================================================

You'll need to tweak your Registry a bit:

1. Open Start Menu >> Run. Type "regedit" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
This will open the registry editor.

2. Navigate to the following path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies

** If the registry key StorageDevicePolicies doesn't exist, you'll need to create it manually.

3. Double click the key WriteProtect in the right window, and set the value to 0 in the Value Data box. Press OK.

4. Restart your computer.

5. Try to format your USB flash drive.

(if you experience any problems after editing the Registry,
roll your system back to the restore point you created.)


Good luck!

USB flash drive write protection


Most USB drives don't have a Write Protection switch, but if yours does, then move the slider.

If it doesn't have a switch, the only way to use the drive is to format the drive. First, note the drive letter, such as E, F G for your drive. *** BE CAREFUL *** This will remove all files. Go to Windows Explorer, note the drive letter , Right-click and select Format. Again, BE CAREFUL not to format any other drive, just your removable USB drive.

Hope this helps.

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.

Cheers!
