The best DVD protection removal program I'd like to recommend to you is Leawo DVD Copy. It's the perfect program to remove DVD copy protection Windows 7 users could use. It can remove the DVD protection when copying the DVD to your computer hard drive or to another disc and create a protection-free copy of your DVD. Its support for 1:1 lossless DVD backup would allow you to create a backup that's exactly the same as the original disc regarding quality.

SOURCE: Remove Write Protection

Try this,
1.
Check out if the USB drive has a small swich for write protection. If its there try toggling the switch.

2.
Windows can all write protect flash drives. Check out this registry path,

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies.

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.

SOURCE: Remove Write Protection

This seems to be the problem of most of us these days and some of our readers who wanted to know the methods how they can remove the Write Protected error from their USB drives like Pen Drives and memory cards.


What is Write Protected error and why it happens?
In the Write Protected error, we can’t write or copy any data in our flash drives and even can’t format the drive.
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 form here

http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Hard-Disk-Utils/HDD-Low-Level-Format-Tool.shtml

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.
Update 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.


Click OK and the drive will be reusable after this.
Update 2 (Better Solution):
Follow the steps in this post and just put the value 0 (zero) in step 5.
This will surely solve your problem now.

OK. The movie industry strikes again! Your RENTED DVDs are the key.Hollywood made some adjustments to prevent the copying of the movies. So they put software to detect the kind of drives in which the movies are inserted. DVD/RW are capable of copying a movie, so they are disqualified as playing devices. Have it be a normal DVD player you won't be facing any troubles.

I wish to copy a DVD with .DAT file or other video


First to make it clean, you are not allowed to make copies of the original DVDs. They are under Copyright law.

You may make a copy of original DVD for home/backup purpose.

Put your DVD in your drive.

If some movie playing software opens, than close it !
Plug your USB device and open it.
Create a folder with the name of movie, and open it !

Open My computer, right click on your DVD Rom device, and click Open.

You will see contents of the DVD. Press CTRL+A click and drag it to the new folder on your USB !

Later you can watch the movie from the USB.

If you want to copy a disc to antoher you need some software like Nero and you should choose a DVD Copy.

Please note that you will need a Disc with tjhe same size as the original (4.7 or 8.4 GB) and also, note that some DVD movies are protected and can not be copied, or that you might not be able to watch a copy of it.

Regards.

USB 16 GB transcend says disc is write protected!!


You should try to delete the partition in the Transcend memory stick and creat a new partition. You should copy any files that you need off this memory device before you re-partition it because you will lose all the data that is stored on the device.

Go to the Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Magament.
Scroll down until you see your removeable device the 16Gb memory device, click once on this, It may not show it as Healthy.
Right click in this disk (make sure you do not select the C drive) and click on Delete Partition to remove the partition.
Right click on this unpartition drive and Create a partition.
You may not have to format this partition, it should now show this as a healthy drive.
Exit out of Disk/computer Management and Control Panel.

The USB drive should now function normally.
