How To Remove Write Protection From Any Pendrive Or Memory Card..??

Write protection always seems to rear it's ugly head at the worst possible moment but fear not, we've put together a handy guide so you can get around it fast, or determine once and for all if your memory card or USB drive is broken.


Open Registry editor of your PC

 For this you should type command “regedit” on run.

Successively navigate to following linkHKEYLOCALMACHINE\SYSTEM\Currentcontrolset\control\storatedevicepolicies( Note: if you can’t find ” storatedevicepolicies ” after “control” folder then you need to create it. For that follow instructions       mentioned below )

Open a new note pad file.

Copy this
cd\reg add “HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies” /t Regdword /v
WriteProtect /f /d 0

save it as DISABLEWP.BAT

Then copy it to start up folder.

 In right side u will be getting writeprotect option, just right click that and modify the hexadecimal value from 1 to 0

Restart your PC and enjoy!!!!

Method #3 

1. Start > Run  -> type “CMD” and press enter
2. type< diskpart
3. type< list volume
4. type< select volume # (# is the number of the USB HDD you’ve pluged in)
5. type< attributes disk clear readonly

(If you need help while typing commands then type “HELP FORMAT” on command prompt)


There are a series of options in the Group Policy Object Editor that deal with read/write permissions on hard drives and removable media.  I basically changed their individual settings from “Not configured” to “Disabled”.

Start -> Run… -> gpedit.msc -> OK
Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Removable Storage Access

In here I disabled all of the “Deny read access/write access” options; you may only want to disable the ones relating directly to the type of media that you want to access.

Here are the ones I changed:

Removable Disks:  Deny execute access
Removable Disks:  Deny read access
Removable Disks:  Deny write access

Double-click each one and select the ‘Disabled‘ radio button.

Do the same as above, except the first step is “User Configuration” instead of “Computer Configuration”

(Best result if you try both method #1 and method #4 together)
