    HI
    I DID THE FOLLOWING AND IT MADE NO DIFERENCE:-

    1. Opened Start Menu >> Run, type regedit and press Enter, this will open
    the registry editor.

    2. Navigate to the following path:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control

    I had to create the registry key StorageDevicePolicies as it did not exist.

    3. Doubled click the key WriteProtect in the right window and set the value to 0 in the Value Data Box and press OK button

    4. Restarted computer and tried copying files into USB drive.

    LIGHT ON USB DEVICE STILL FLASHING IE BUSY.

    have you any other suggestions?
