USB thumb drive read only
Hi

I have Vista Ultimate SP1. I seem to have locked myself out from writing to
USD thumb drives.

I have tried several USB thumb drives in different USB ports. When I try to
create a new file or erase a file I get "Access denied" messages.

This happens with a general user account, admin account both in normal and
safemode.

I did have a try using gpedit.msc and under Comuter Configuration >
Administrative Templates > System > Removal Storage Access had set Removable
Disks to deny write access.

I have now reset this to Not Configure but I am still unable to write to the
USB drives.

Do I need to do something else to regain write access?

Many thanks
