 If you are that techie, you would have experienced this kind of error message while trying to transfer files from your PC to a USB Flash drive or an SD Card. This error is as a result of the storage device cannot be written because it is write protected.
USB flash or SD Card can be write protected, probably because of a fault in the flash or SD Card or the manufacturer settings. You get an error message that reads;
The Disk cannot be written because it is write protected. Please remove the write protection from the volume in drive \Device|Harddisk1\DR5.


Normally, when a Flash or SD Card is write protected, you cannot modify, copy/paste, or delete any files from the USB drive.

In this post, i will guide you on how you can remove the write protection in your Flash drive or SD card. Kindly follow me along.
How to Remove Write Protection From USB Drive or SD Card

This method will fix it once and for all for you
==> Press Win+R (This will open the registry editor)

==> Type in regedit and hit the OK button

==> Expand and collapse the entries on the left to navigate to the following location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies


If you don't have a StorageDevicePolici es folder in the Control folder, right-click in the folder and select "New" → "Key." Name it StorageDevicePolici es and then open it.

==> Double-click the WriteProtect key located in the right side and set the value to 0. Go to the Data Value box and press OK:
Registry-edit


==> Reboot your computer and reconnect your USB drive to the system, the drive should now be writable.

That's all friends. Simple as alphabet.

However, if you followed the above guidelines and still you are unable to remove the write protection from the storage device, then, you will be left with no other choice than to format the storage device.
