I am trying to save to my NEW PNY usb flashdrive and it keeps telling me it's write protected. There is NO switch or anything to unprotect this thing. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?

Depending on what you are trying to save, the file or files might be write protected. If it is just music, it should transfer fine. Assuming your using a PC, if you right click on the file your trying to transfer and click properties, it will have options such as "read only" or "hidden", make sure none of those are checked. You can also do the same for your new flashdrive if you view that drive in "My Computer" from the start tab.
Good luck, hopefully that's the problem.

On the side of your card, there's a very small notch/switch that moves up and down. It can be bumped into the "lock" position which prevents writing to the disk. You need to switch this little tab back to the other position. This is a standard feature on most/all flash memory cards.
