Use regedit to change dword value.

1.Enable and Disabling of USB write protect using regedit

Enabling USB write protect

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies]

“WriteProtect”=dword:00000000

Disabling

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies]

“WriteProtect”=dword:00000001
