    First you need to connect your IPod to PC and open start Menu > Run and type regedit and press Enter, this will open the registry editor. then search the path : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies. Then double click the key WriteProtect in the right pane and set the value to 0 in the Value Data Box and press OK. Then exit the Registry windows and restart your computer and then again reconnect your IPod on your computer and check.

    Remove write protection on iPod

    On my IPod, there is a "Lock/Unlock" slide bar on the opposite end of IPOD. It uses the symbols of a "lock" and an "open hasp lock" to show that the device is "locked" (write-protected) or "unlocked" or not write-protected. Ithink you may also check it out and reply.
