Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive
I have a password protected Fujifilm 8gb USB Flashdrive without a write protect switch.
By mistake, I left it in my computer when I shut down and switched off and didn't notice it when I switched computer back on again and now when I insert it into any USB port on any computer and put in my password, I get a message telling me that the drive is Write Protected, please Unprotect the drive. I did not write protect the drive (it has no write protect switch) and do not know how to unprotect it. Please can anyone help with this ? I have important info on the drive that I need. Thanks

Tips for a great answer:
It is true that locking mobile storage devices, such as USB drives, with Imation Lock is an excellent way to protect your data.
However, using Imation Lock with a Kingston USB drive can create problems.
Learn how to unlock your Kingston USB drive so you can use it once again.
Ensure that your Kingston USB drive has been removed from your computer's USB port.
Start the Imation Lock software by double clicking the Imation Lock.
Plug in the Kingston USB into a USB port immediately after the "Please Insert the Device or Run This Utility as Privileged User" message appears.
Access your Kingston USB drive by clicking Start > Computer.
Double click on the device.
Start the Imation Lock software again by double clicking the Imation Lock.
Disable the password protection by clicking the open lock icon.
If you have password protected a USB drive or partition on your computer and have since forgotten the password, you will need to completely erase the drive.
Erasing and reformatting the drive will remove any password protection, software and data on the drive preventing you from accessing the drive.
The process is simple using Window's Disk Management utility.
Log into the computer as the administrator.
Open the Windows Start menu, select "Run," type "Compmgmt.msc" and click "OK." In Windows Vista and Windows 7, simply type the command into the "Search" field.
Select "Disk Management."
Locate the password-protected drive.
Right-click it and select "Delete." Confirm the action.
The drive will be erased and become unallocated free space.
Hope this helps.
