hello,

there is surely a lock button on the pen and just try to locate it on the pen you should disable it. or else if there isnt that option just try to format it in windows

- Start > Run > type 'regedit' (without the speachmarks) > Enter
- Single-click on 'My Computer' > File > Export > save it to the Desktop (Always best to have a backup!!)
- Go to the following:
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Curre... olicies
*There seems to be some spaces here in 'StorageDevicePolicies' in the text above, there shouldn't be, OK*
- Double click on the string 'WriteProtect' and change the 'Value Data' box to '0'
- Then: File > Export > save somewhere useful as something like 'StorageDevicePolicies001.reg'
- You also need to do this for the strings in any folders called 'ControlSet***' (* = any Digit, i.e. 001, 002) - for example: Everything is the same, just change 'CurrentControlSet' to 'ControlSet***'
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Contr... ies
*There seems to be some spaces here in 'StorageDevicePolicies' in the text above, there shouldn't be, OK*
- Save these to the same place as before as 'StorageDevicePolicies00*'

The saves are in case it reverts at a later date, just double click (saying 'yes' to importing these to the registry) on all of the files and it will all work again!....
ok dude try it I found it.... ...****

Thanks for the post to that USB flash drive formatter - worked great and restored functionality to my pen drive.

I had the write protect issue after I got hit with virus (would put system.exe and autorun.inf on the root of the pen drive). It would continue to write those files to it a few seconds after I deleted it. Anyway, all is well now.

Thanks!!!

There is a lock, it is usually very small.You have to shift the lock into the right place and insert into your computer .Now you should be able to delete it.

When I was having this problem all I had to do was check my pendrive, and see if the switch on the side was on or not. most pendrive have a sercurity or saftey switch on them. make sure its at off if u want to delet or save anything on to them
