I can not format my USB disk. The error shows me that it is write protected. So how can I disable the write protection. Please solve my problem. Thanks!

    If you haven't, check the device for a physical switch of some sort.

    You can also try to remove write protection from your usb flash drive or memory card using the method shared on this page (because it may be a registry issue):
