    There is NO visable switch that can take off the "write-protection". I thought I saved some pictures on it last night but apparently not. I didn't get this write-protected message last night though when I thought I was saving the files

    My Dane elec does not have a switch for this either. I can drag files into it, but when I tried to make a bootable recovery disk for my Asus, it says the disk is locked. It is a blank usb, help!

On USB stick, there is a "Lock/Unlock" slide bar on the opposite end of USB port. It uses the symbols of a "lock" and an "open hasp lock" to show that the device is "locked" (write-protected) or "unlocked" or not write-protected. remove the lock

There should be a very small slide switch along the edge of the card. Sliding this one way will lock (write protect) or unlock the card.
