My flash drive keeps saying it is write protected.


Three possible Solution to this problem are:-

1:) 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.

2:)Use a software tool Neo2.9

3:)1. Open Registry Editor by typing regedit in Run dialog.

2. Navigate to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\

3. Find a sub key inside it named "StorageDevicePolicies". If it does not exist there then we need to make it. Right click on "Control" key -> New -> Key. Name it "StorageDevicePolicies" without quotes.

4. Now right click on this newly created key and then click New -> DWORD value and name it as "WriteProtect".

5. Modify this key and give it a value 0.

6. Click OK, and remember to restart the PC.

GOOD LUCK...........
