How do I toggle the Write Protect function of the UltraBay II?

The UltraBay can be switched into read/write mode for SATA/IDE/SCSI operation (USB and FireWire ports are always write-blocked).

Before switching the UltraBay II on or attaching a drive, press the Menu button until you reach the Switch RO/RW function. Press Enter (and then Enter again) to change the state to read/write.

The write protect will be turned on automatically once you power cycle the UltraBay II. This auto-RO behavior is a safeguard against accidentally leaving the bridge in RW mode.
