Try this..

First, create a whole new key: HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control \ StorageDevicePolicies.

Then create a REG_DWORD entry in it called WriteProtect. Set it to 1 and you'll be able to read from USB drives but not write to them.

As a previous poster stated, you will need to create the following registry value:

Key: HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies

Value: WriteProtect


Value: 1

This key will not exist, so you will have to create it yourself to enable the write protection to external storage devices.
