    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control
    Does sub-key StorageDevicePolicies exist? If yes, right click to delete this sub-key

  3. the solution suggested by arges86 is diametrically opposed to other solutions offered by several others that say to CREATE the StorageDevicePolicies sub-key, if it doesn't already exist, & either way, to make sure that the D-word setting is zero & not 1. The zero is supposed to unseat the write protect. Now I am really confused, having the same problem myself. Can you explain further, please?
  4. So, the idea is that there may be conflicting or corrupt register keys
    Obviously, you need to back up your registry before you do ANYTHING.

    So deleting this key, can get rid of conflicts or corrupted keys.
  5. what if the StorageDevicePolicies doesnt exist? what will i do??
  6. how to resolving the write protected pen drive? any software available
