We all use USB drives and SD cards for different purposes. But most of the times due to the virus we get our USB drives and SD cards corrupted or turn into a state where we cannot edit any files or folders that are available in it, on top of that we can neither copy or paste anything from the drive.
So this problem will eventually end by destroying the drive and make it useful for nothing.
So in this tutorial, i am going to share a simple trick to remove Write Protection From USB Or SD Card. In order to do that make sure your drive is free from all type of viruses because most of the times even a single virus affected file can cause the problem.
Scan your pen drive or SD card to get rid of the virus. And most of the times write protection will be removed by just scanning. But if the problem still persists then follow the below procedure.
Step 1. Press Windows Key + R then a Dialog box will appear.
Step 2. Now type Regedit and then hit the enter key that will open the Registry Editor.
Step 3. Now all you need to do is just move to “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentConrolSet/Control/StorageDevicePolicy” in the Registry Editor.
After you complete the above step you will see a WriteProtect option. Now click on it and change its value to 0.
This is one of the best ways to protect your SD card or Pendrive from Write Protect. There are many other methods out there with different process but this one is easy and works well.
