    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

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

Don'thow to use it


Plug the drive into an available USB port on your computer. Windows should recognize the driver and install the drivers for it automatically. You should be able to access the drive by double clicking on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop. It may also pop up to view contents automatically.

I have a verbatim 4gb micro with a write protect error. I cannot delete the files, add more files or format the stick. Regards Mano


It has password protection. Open My Computer on your PC, insert the USB drive, open the password file, enter your password, then select the option to remove password protection from the USB drive. If this does not work, contact Verbatim for a solution, these USB flash drives have lifetime warranties.

How to remove write protect on my usb flash drive


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.

I am having Jetflash v10 16 gb model 'Transcend' USB Flash Drive.


Dear Friend,

My Jetflash also writeprotected, there's no any solution for this in internet but I could solve this problem,

what you can do is, make your write protected drive "shared", that means go to my computer---> then rigtclick on flash drive---> click sharing & security---> check both "share this folder on network" & "allow users to change my files" ,apply setting then you'll be able to format your drive.

I could do it,
let others to know about this solution. Because I also suffered from this problem.
