    fungua START menu, andika REGEDIT, select hiyo REGEDIT, fungua kwa mtiririko huu--> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/StorageDevicePolicies, double click on 'writeProtect', and on 'value data' option, put zero(0) and then click OK, then restart computer and plug the flash disk..

    Editing the registry should only be done by experienced computer specialists as any mistake can lead to very very serious consequences.
    Good luck but be very careful and follow the given instructions precisely

    kama ni tatizo linatokea kwenye zaidi ya mashine moja it more or a hardware issue and specifically USB drive than a software or configuration issue .

    Omary hili tatizo dogo sana, the reason flash yako inafanya hivyo is due to some virus action. it happens when some virus or script which applies the registry hack to make any drive write protect when connected to the computer..computer zote zenye input ya pen drives, memory cards lazima ziwe na StorageDevicePolicies, kama umafuatilia maelezo yangu vizuri na ukafungua StorageDevicePolicies do this, double click on 'writeProtect', and on 'value data' option, put zero(0) and then click OK..then restart the device and plug in your flash disk.....mimi natumia Win7 na nimehakikisha tena na nimefanikiwa, ol th bst'......:caked:

    Mkuu am sure what am saying hiyo storage devicespolices haipo kwani kama flash ina sema write protected it means kuna kirus kinachotafuna hilo faili when u put a flash so how to get this file ndio nashindwa yoyote mwenye link ya hii kitu add.bat anitumie kwani hii kitu ndio hutengeneza hilo file.

    Ok here is the solution kwa wale ambao Device policies haipo (kama mimi)

    Start by opening the run dialog box with the keyboard shortcut [Windows R]. Type [regedit] and hit [enter]. This should open the Windows Registry editor.[​IMG]
    Navigate to the following Registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\
    Look at the sub-keys and see if a key named StorageDevicePolicies is listed. If it is skip this paragraph and read the next. If it is not create the key by right-clicking Control and selecting New > Key
    See if there is an entry named WriteProtect. It can be easily created if it is not present by right-clicking in the right window and selecting New > DWord from the menu. The following values are allowed for this entry:

    • 0 – This will allow write processes on USB Flash Drives
    • 1- This will block write processes on USB Flash Drives.
    An alternative would be to delete the Registry key WriteProtect completely to enable both read and write processes. A restart or log off is required before the changes take effect.

    Make sure the disk doesn't have a slider lock on the side, if it does set it to Unlocked.
    mount the drive on PC and right-click on it, >properties> Security> set permissions to allow Write.
