Hello I am trying to re-install Windows 7 Ultimate Edition via a USB. The problem my USB (8GB San Disk) is write protected which I never did anything to it like that...
What I've tried to do to fix it...
- The regedit trick (MyComputer->HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->SYSTEM->CurrentControlSet->Control -> StorageDevicePolicies) to clear it (set to 0) but I don't have it (and I tried to find it by other means to)
- Clear Read-Only attribute via an elevated Command Prompt - it said it worked but when I try to format it it threw the same message.
- Also no it does not have a read only switch on it or anything like that.
Please help - this is fairly urgent... What do I do?
