Yes, but it wasn't very noticeable. When recommending registry edits it is preferable to make the warning first and to make sure people see it.
Sneakycyber-It doesn't hurt to give additional instructions, but, if you read my post, I tell, at the beginning of the fix, how to Back-Up the registry.

Juha-I went to the first url you listed-http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/topic/35725/. On the second page of the USB write protected drive problems was listed a reg fix, which I did, And, it worked. Am pasting it here in case somebody else needs it. Thanks again for your help. I really appreciate it.
Re: Problem with USB flash drive-"Write Protected"
There is a simple solution for thisin the case of windows.
Just do a "regedit" for StorageDevicePolicies key. . Get
into the Registry - Press Start ->Run, enter regedit, press Ok
Click on My Computer. Then press File Export, give some file
name to backup the registry. Just in caseyou ever need to rollback.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/StorageDevicePolicies .
In the right pane select "writeprotect" . RESET the value to '0' Repeat
the same for ControlSet001 and ControlSet002 incase they exist. Now plug
in your USB drives and it should work. Else just reboot the machine and try.
