    Trouble:

    How can you make your portable USB drive write protected so no data can be deleted or added on the pen drive
    *

    Portable drives or cards can be write protected by two ways either by physical lock provided on some of the pen drives, but locking the drive with physical lock is not a good way as any one can move the physical lock and make your drive writable.

    Second method to make the drive write protected involves a registry hack which actually is computer dependent not the drive as it deals with registry.

    *

    Note: With this registry hack you will actually make all the removable drives connected to your computer write protected, as this registry hack instructs windows to make any removable storage device write protected.
