How to Remove Write Protect from USB

  admin       Saturday, October 4, 2014
Some USB flash drive utilities can write protect the whole storage area by modifying the firmware. For instance the USB flash drive application can write protect or un-write protect most USB flash drives that have an SMI controller. You can also make a CD/DVD-ROM partition on the drive using this utility (which will be write-protected).

If you have used a USB disk run the Windows 8 to go! Operating System or perhaps a Vista/Windows 7 OS and now you cannot access it under Windows Vista or 7 even with RMPrepUSB, or even format it under Windows, it may be because the disk has been marked as Read-Only. You may be able to use it in other PCs or notebooks but not your PC. Another test would be to try it on another Operating System.

In this content will show how to remove write protect from USB:

1- Open Start Menu  >>  Run  (or Windows key + R)
