I can't view videos

What formats are you trying to view?
For example Apple won't play .mkv and some .avi's.

.MP4 works fine in general because it is apple own format.

Should you want to play the above mentioned formats (of course you do), try a video player like VLC. Works like a charm for me on my MBP.

How do I remove write protection for moving files from my PC onto a flash drive

If they are music or video files, you need to reset the preferences on Windows Media Player to allow you to play any media with or without license- default is to lock out unlicensed music or video in most cases, or use a third party program like Video Lan. Although some formats for apple downloads are formatted only for Apple media unless you download a conversion program..

What is hsf format on Mac PowerBook

I believe you mean HFS, not hsf.

HFS+ is the filesystem that Apple uses. As opposed to NTFS on a Windows machine(fat on older machines) and ext3 on Linux.

It's how the computer organizes it's data.

Although Apple cannot read NTFS you can by using 3rd party applications such as MacFuse

Alternatively if you want to access to Apple HFS+ filesystem from a windows machine you can use HFS Explorer.

How can i buy a brand new cp?

I suspect this was for files on an HFS+ file system where the resource fork and extended attributes are still part of the file.

I suspect that once the Apple-Double format has been created, the cp command treats the individual parts are separate unrelated files.

Maybe this is something you should ask Apple to address with a smarter cp command:
