How to remove write protection from kingston usb drive


From the Kingston website:
DT101G2 - DataTraveler 101 G2 FAQ

Is there any security or write protection feature available for this DataTraveler? Unfortunately this unit does not have any security or write protection feature. If you receive a write protection message with this drive, check for the following:

  1. Verify that you are allowed to write to removable storage devices. There may be a security setting in the OS that disables write access to removable storage devices.
  2. Make sure you have not enabled write protection on the drive by using a third party software.
  3. If none of the above apply, the drive may be defective. Contact Kingston Technical Support for further assistance.

Formating process of 2GB write-protected usb


Okay if you right click on the drive and open properties, you should see a check box that says Read Only. Make sure that that is unchecked. If it is already unchecked tell me and I will continue troubleshooting. Then attempt to format the drive again.

Flash Disk problem


Hi asad_wouria,

Try it on another computer or try to format it. If it continues to give that message then you need to get it replaced at the reseller or with Kingston.
