i just bought my self a media storage that i need it to store my files that filled up my laptop, i’m so excited when i received the storage but when i plugged it into my laptop and try to create a new folder it reject it say that the media is write protected, after searching a while in the net i found the solution.

  1. Open Registry Editor ( Start Menu > Run , type : Regedit, then enter/click OK)
  2. locate the following key/entry :
  3. If you see WriteProtect on the right side, double click it and in value data type 0 or delete WriteProtect or you can also delete key StorageDevicePolicies. next is to refresh (View > Refresh)
  4. unplugged the storage/ USB Flash Disk and plug in again and try to copy / write something to the disk
