Pendrive Shows Write Protected?

Make sure that the switch for your USB is not in write protect

You can try


If that doesn't work try to format with linux and a software called gparted

If that doesn't work the drive goes in the garbage.

Pendrive Shows Write Protected?

That drive does not have a write-protect switch, so perhaps it is encrypted with some sort of software.

Pendrive Shows Write Protected?

Postby Ezer » Sun Oct 15, 2017 3:57 am

sandisk 8 gb usb turned into write protected.

1 it was not formatted through any

usb format software.

2. Registry StoreDevicePolicies attempt

also not worked out.

6. In command prompt mode as an

administrator solution also not worked


There is no other solution in web to solve the issue except throw away the pendrive. Otherwise, make an exchange if we can.

Is there any other solution to workout other than above 3 solutions?
