Go to solution Solved by thekingofmonks,

I had a write protection registry set to 1 all this time

fck

What the hell is going on

Why does windows suck this bad and how do I fix this problem??

Main setup: Republic of Gaymers G531GT, Logitech G305, Apple 3.5mm Earpods, Kworld MP90 90x40cm cloth pad, external SATA optical drive

 

Main G531GT: i7-9750H (forced 55W boost), GTX 1650M (TU117 1024C, 4GD5, +150c +700d5),  2x8GB 2666MHz (Samsung/TeamGroup), Micron NVMe 512GB Gen 3 (Win10 21H2), Seagate Barracuda 1TB SATA HDD, 1920x1080@158Hz IPS panel, tons of additional copper on bottom cover

 

Alt1, server: i5-4590, OEM stock aluminium cooler, Gigabyte B85M-D3H, Asus DirectCU II GTX 650Ti (or MSI R9 280 Gaming), 4x4GB 1600MHz (Kingston Fury Red 1600MHz x2, Panram Lightsaber 2800MHz x2), Samsung 860 Evo 512GB SATA (Win10 21H2), 160GB shared HDD, AOC 210S 1680x1050@60Hz D-sub monitor, all inside an Acer office PC case with decent airflow, brutally modded to fit long cards and avoid sagging

 

Alt2, iMac 21.5" (late 2011): i5-2400S, Radeon HD 6750M (512mb, MXM), 4x2GB 1333MHz (Samsung/Hynix?), Seagate 500GB SATA (macOS 10.13 High Sierra), 1920x1080@60Hz LCD panel

 

And 2 old working rigs that are pending the arrival of their IDE drives and installation of their systems (sexy Athlon XP and Pentium 4 with HT rigs), gonna get retro 😉

Have you tried it on another computer? This exact thing happened to me this morning where all my SD cards were write-protected and plugging them into my sister's laptop made them magically writable. No, I made sure the write protection tab was in the correct position and tried it both ways.

I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL! Please, quote or mention people so they get a notification, please. pls let me know if i did something stupid

If I started a new shop, and named it "Shop", what would be your reaction? That's my reaction when people title their post as "Windows 11" or something shitty instead of something that actually describes what the thread is about. Only cool kids (dark mode users) can read this.

Without more information, it's hard to say exactly what might fix this for you, however, I know there are 2 ways to make disk partitions write protected by using diskpart or by changing a Windows registry value.
