I reviewed your post and I understand that the pen drive is showing write protected message when connected to the computer.


Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.


I recommend you follow the below steps and check if it helps.


Go to My Computer/This PC and under Devices with Removable Storage, look for your pen drive device. Right-click on it and click Properties. Click Edit, in the pop-up box, sometimes there's an option to Remove write-protection. Change the status of this option and try again.

change pen drive properties to allow read and write


Method 2. Disable Write Protection Using CMD



Step 1. Search command prompt in Windows and run the program as an administrator.

Step 2. On the Windows Command Prompt, type each command line as follows and each command should be followed by an Enter key.

Step 3. When the write protection has been removed, you'll see the message 'Disk attribute cleared successfully'. Type exit, so you can close the window.


Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!
