SOURCE: PNY 4 G USB DISK IS WRITE PROTECTED

Not sure what exactly is happening when you try to use the disk. Is it a used disk? Did you just purchase it? Do you get an error when trying to use it?

From the limited information, I would suggest going to the website and seeing if there is a solution from PNY: http://www2.pny.com/support/support_landing_cat.aspx?SectionID=1143 (their support page).

If it still doesn't work, post more details & I'll see if I can help.

Have a good day!

Cannot remove write protection from pen drive


Write protect can mean:


  • You do not have enough rights to modify. I came from another account.
  • It has an actual dip switch you move up and down.
  • The file is in use.

Transcend JetFlash V60 16GB pen drive is write protected


Flash drives by default use the FAT32 file system. FAT32 has a limit of 4gb per file. So you could have four 4gb files on your pen drive, but no files bigger than about 4gb. You could use the NTFS format, but it's not suggested for flash drives since it reads/writes much more often than FAT and will make the drive lifetime MUCH shorter.
