How to Remove "the Disk is Write Protected" error for USB pendrive

By bruceprem ·
I can't format my USB pen Drive, it shows the error as "The Disk is Write Protected"
I tried various methods to solve this but all are not working.Like regedit.msc,devicemgmt.msc,DOS prompt & safe mode command prompt.
There's no switch in the USB disk.
Its "SanDisk Cruzer Edge-8GB USB drive" .
I am using Windows XP SP3.Please give me solution as earliest as possible.

Thanks a lot. This works for me! I was unable to format the usb drive because of the "write protected" message. After adding the WriteProtect into the new StorageDevicePolicies registry key the problem was resolved.
