Your pen drive malfunctioned or can not be formatted anymore because it was corrupted or damage the chipset, you can only read the data, songs or pictures but you can not save or edit the file saved on your pen drive. Have a nice day!

This flash drive has a safety button located directly on it. PLEASE SWITCH THE BUTTON OVER, it will be easy to switch with the use of a nail on your finger. Once this is done, you will have access to the data on the flashjet card again. This is actually a safety feature that prevents you from accidently formatting the jetflash flash card. Thank you and have a great day.

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.

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.

Apacer's download site:
