I am using a laptop, Dell630, Window XP. As my company policy, the computer is running a daemon program to lock the USB port. the USB device can only be read, can not be write. So I want to make it also write able. Any idea of how to make it the USB writeable?

+1. The questioner needs to ask him-/her-self if the potential disciplinary action is worth being able to write to a USB device from that machine for. – David Spillett Sep 11 '10 at 20:37
