Make My USB write protect on other computers

Hi
Hope all you are fine.
I want to make an usb disk write protected, I have found doing this as a solution:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies]
"WriteProtect"=dword:00000001
But this has drawbacks for me:
It doesn't work on another computer.
I want to make USB write Protect on My Computer and when I use My USB on another computer or my friend bring this USB and use it on his computer, then it should be write protect Automatically.

Thank you

Hi,

This is not possible without you implementing the registry hack on your friends PC. If your goal is to protect your USB drive from malware, then you are probably better off vaccinating using something like Panda:
