write protect error exception processing message

Posted: 10-07-2008, 06:51 PM

Hi

I`m getting this error message when playing music from an externa
drive(OS is Ultimate x64)

write protect error exception processing message 0xc00000a

I searched the error code and came up with this

0xC00000A2 STATUS_MEDIA_WRITE_PROTECTE
{Write Protect Error} The disk cannot be written to because it i
write-protected. Remove the write protection from the volume %hs i
drive %hs

This really puzzels me...the external hdd where I keep my mp3s is a W
MyBook and doesn`t have write protection..I tried disabling UAC and th
error still appears. Tried using media player instead of winamp, sam
thing. I have another MyBook with movies on it and it doesn`t give thi
error when i play them

Does anyone know a solution to fix this ? Other than this erro
message, when I try playing music, the drive works flawless so I don`
thinks it`s a hardware issue..

Thanks

I am experiencing the same problem with a WD 1TB notebook. It has become
very frustrating. When I first connected the EHD it worked perfectly then
all the sudden it was write protected. I have uninstalled Norton AV thinking
that was protecting it because it thought there was a virus on it. Was
scanned before and after problem. Detected no virus but I was trying
anything. I've used restore points sometimes they work for a power cycle,
sometimes two but it always write protects the drive sooner or later. I've
changed the owner to administrators, when it wasn't write protected and I was
able to, I've changed permissions to full control for everyone.
I'm about to set this CP on fire and send it back. Any help would be
GREATLY appreciated.

I found a temporary solution to my problem. I moved the mp3s, formate
the drive and put movies on it. Until now it worked fine and gave n
errors. I don't know if this issue is drive content-related..don`t hav
the test capability either but for me it worked

I'm getting ready to do the same thing. I may even redo the CP hard drive if
this doesn't work also. I'll write back and let you know how it goes.
