Hello All,
I have windows 7 and I was able to put anything on the flash.
But once when you move anything or create a new Folder give me error.
When I open Disk Management found that the USB stick put it changed to Read Only.
And tried another USB Flash & hard disk the same thing Read Only.

What can I do!!!!

That should mean that you have some setting in your OS that prevents writing (to be 100% sure you can test those devices on another PC).

There are two main reasons for this, one is the use of this key in Registry:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies]
“WriteProtect”=dword:00000001
there are tens or maybe hundreds of "USB protect" softwares that use the above, if this is the case, you can use info here:

to disable the key.


The other one is this particular software that implements a READ ONLY filter driver in the system:

(though there may be others that use the same approach)

Of course only you can say if you ever run the above mentioned - or some similar - software.
