pendrive write protection removal


I have sandisk cruzer blade 8 GB pen drive.

whenever I go to copy files from my computer to it, it gives me message
" The disk is write protected. remove write protection first."

How should I remove it. I tried it at my own , but unable to see any write protection removal option in "Properties"

pls help..


In the zone
1. Insert the pen drive and then open the Start Menu
2. Run, type regedit and press Enter; this will open the registry editor
3. Navigate to the following path:

4. Double click the key WriteProtect in the right panel and set the value to 0 In the Value Data Box. Press OK
5. Exit Registry
6. Restart your computer and re-connect your USB pen drive on your computer.

Hope this will help :)
