Having problems with your Computer Utilities & Maintenance ?

PC problem Sir, In my computer if I connect any USB device to any of the USB ports it immediately becomes write protected. I can't move any file/folder to any where. My virus scan says 'no threats detected'. Please tell me wht to do now. I have already spoiled one USB drive in the process. The device which becomes write protected shows the same status in other computers also! Pl. help! My computer config. is: Intel dual core 2.4 GHz. 3 GB RAM, 8400 graphic card 250 GB HDD Loaded with Wibndows XP


Answers :

I'm not sure if this will work, but you can try and uninstall your usb drivers and reinstall them: right click "my computer," -manage, -device manager,-select "universal serial bus", and uninstall the drivers on all of them. Windows should automatically reinstall them after detecting them. This worked when my laptop crashed everytime I plugged any usb in.
There is a simple solution for this in the case of windows.
\015\012Just do a "regedit" for StorageDevicePolicies key.
\015\012. Get into the Registry - Press Start -> Run, enter regedit, press Ok
\015\012. Click on My Computer. Then press File -> Export, give some file\015\012name to backup the registry. Just incase you ever need to rollback.
\015\012. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/StorageDevicePolicies
\015\012. In the right pane select "writeprotect"
\015\012. RESET the value to '0'
\015\012
\015\012Repeat the same for ControlSet001 and ControlSet002 incase they exist.
\015\012
\015\012Now plug in your USB drives and it should work. Else just reboot the machine and try.\015\012\011\011\011\015\012\011\011
