    I am having the same problem, but when I try saving to the external hard drive. I tried looking for that security tab, but it's not on it. I have Windows Vista basic. I hope that's not why.

    I am having the same type of problem, but with CD and DVD rewritable discs. The computers keeps telling me that the disk is not writeable or that the drive is not accessible or other infuriateling errors.

Problem is caused by NTFS partition on Vista.
Remove drive then reinsert or insert right after full boot.
Back up data, reformat in fat then copy data back.

Hii sir pls help me mine kingstone data traveler 2gb is write protected so how shall i remove write protected?


Copy all the files onto your 'C:' drive.
Spend $9 to buy a new 2GB USB memory-stick.
Copy the files to the new memory-stick.
Take a sledge-hammer to the old memory-stick -- to prevent anybody else from reading your files.

Simpletech external hard drive is showing as write-protected disk


Usually a protected hard drive has been in a laptop and the hard drive password is setup from the laptop's BIOS configuration. This password is embedded on the hard drive's chip.
This password protects the data from unauthorized access and must be removed before reuse in another laptop or as an external hard drive.
There are no backdoor passwords available and needs to be removed using that laptop's BIOS configuration, you need to know the password to enable you remove the password peotection.

Write protection error


If you have a USB memory stick that has a small slide switch on the side, this switch is a copy protection switch, move this switch to allow you to copy onto the USB memory stick.

The computer says my external hard drive has this error: write protect Ox80070013. I will not allow me to write to the drive, such as backing up the files on my computer. It never did this before. Howie


Check Device Manager is clean. You may need to re-install a driver. Is this a USB hard drive or USB memory stick? Some devices have a write-protect switch (these can be very small!) - has yours got one?
Give more details on what the external hard drive is and how it is attached pls?
