Write Protected UConnect USB Drive

Anyone know how to remove the write protection from the USB drives that come with Map updates? My Uconnect System has been updated to newer versions that that received and having it write protected seems like a waste of a good 4 GB USB drive. Have tried regedit modification and CMD Attribute method with no success.

The key may be hardware protected in the key itself.
Do you have MSDN or Debugging Tools for Windows?
USBView seems to do the best job on windows machines, but don't get it anywhere except from Microsoft--as the source is readily available and easily modified to add crapware.

Don't recall if the Nirsoft usb utilities can tell you who really made the device... they do have some kewl tools.

Re: Write Protected UConnect USB Drive

Last year I order Map updates for the Uconnect 8.4 system. They came on a 4 gb USB stick along with another with a system update on a 4 gb USB stick which I didn't need as I had already downloaded and installed the update. Both USB sticks are write-protected. I have tried unsuccessfully to format these.
