Hi, everyone

I have a problem that i couldn't find a fix to it, it is really annoying 

My External WD HDD 640GB not initialized, but the big problem is that when i want to initialize it i get an error message says "The media is write protected"
It is an external HDD so i don't think it has a turn on/off write protection switch, so how i can turn the write protection off?

Note that when i use DiskPart in CMD, it doesn't show the HDD because it is not initialized, also i have tried changing the value of WriteProtect from 1 to 0 in regedit but it didn't solve the problem, in addition i'v used 3rd party programs but i keep getting that frustrating error message
