    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]
