Windows has its own write block,if you are using Windows XP,here it is:
Open the registry and find this:

under this key there should be a key called "StorageDevicePolicies"
In the right pane there is a REG_DWORD called "WriteProtect" ,double click it and change the value to 1 then all your computer's USB ports should be write protected.

Actually, you need to remove any attached devices and reinsert them, then they become write protected. Same goes for when changing it back from write protected to write enabled.
