How to Remove Write Protected on USB Drive or SD Card

Back then i was having issues on formating my SD card on my PC which took me some extra research why i cant format the Memory card, this always shows "write protected" after some seconds of processing and not only that you can as well get error message if you are transferring  files from your PC to a USB Flash drive or an SD Card.

At first I was confused if either the USB flash or SD card have been passworded or the storage devices had some internal fault. Although it could Also give such error messages if there is a twist in the manufacturer settings.

The Error message reads:
The Disk cannot be written because it is write protected. Please remove the write protection from the volume in drive \Device|Harddisk1\DR5.

If you had an experience on such error message due to "write protected", it will be impossicant to copy and paste files, modify and selecting any files from the storage devices.
