    It like that for a reason.

    Ask your admin to turn it off as it will probably be something to do with a piece of software that stops people stealing intelectual property.

    Oh BTW your meant to be at work to work.

        Noone on this site will assist you to get around restrictions placed by your employer. It is a firing offence at most companies and a criminal offence in some countries.

            Infosys Technologies Ltd was voted best employer in 2001 in your country and won Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises in 2003, 2004, 2005 so it can't be that bad a place to work.

            Even if you did manage to bypass the USB problem so you can listen to music I am sure there will be a secondary level of security to detect the bypass.

            While you don't find harm in listening to music, by opening up the USB to allow music to be played, you also open it up to allow files to be copied to the USB Flash device. I am sure they have a reason for this security so do not ask again how to bypass this restriction.

              Play music via CDs or portable media player.

              If they removed your USB access, it's a safe bet that they removed access to enable it

              Long story short, listen to your tech staff or THIS will happen to you:
