I have used this flash drive for two days and saved a couple of things. Today i opened a file on the flash drive and made some changes to it. I went to save it back to the flash drive and it said the...

Were the changes you made to the drive only with text changes or did you do some attribute changes? If you haven't make attribute changes, then it should save the file without problems unless the total size of the file exceeds the drives total free space, or if the drive is write-protected or damaged. If you can't get it to run any other way, then you might consider reformattting it and starting over. If you have important files you wish to save, then you will need to run some kind of drive data recovery software like BadCopy Pro v4.10.Build.1215 (or similiar) PRIOR to formatting. This program will recover data on just about any media or drive including floppies, usb thumb drives, hard drives, etc.

What do you do if your camera says memory card is write protected

Copy all the files from it onto your computer, just to make a "backup".

Turn the camera off, and remove the memory-card.
Look for a "lock" on it, and slide the lock from the "protected" to the "unprotected" position.

My PC could not save file in my flash drive where as folder can.

Maybe the root of the USB drive is protected. If you got any switch for write protection in the USB drive, unlock it and try saving.

Thank you!

To unprotect

It would depend on your Operating System. If you are using Windows 98 you'll need the drivers from your CD or from Apacer's website. The CD also has tools to perform various functions which might include protecting and unprotecting your flash disk.
