Dane 2gb memory stick 'write protected'

I just bought a Dane 2gb memory stick from Target. Used it back and forth between two laptops to tranfer files. After about the third or fourth transfer I can't delete the files on the memory stick because it is write protected. There isn't anything on the memory stick to slide, push, move in anyway that would make it write protected. How do I get it to work?

    That doesn't work either. Won't let you because it is write protected

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.

How I remove the writw-protection to the memory card


Hi!

In order to remove write-protection from the memory stick, connect it to the device in which write-protection was implemented on it then use the feature of the device to remove write-protection off the memory stick.

Should you require any clarification, you may write back.


Give a try!!!!!

Hi, my dane-elec showing write protected. How can I solve it? I tried http://www.fixya.com/support/t345484-format_write_protect_usb_drive file but did not work. Need help. Thanks, Zia


Click > Start > Run > type "CMD" Then
Type "CHKDSK" and type the letter of your SD drive and "/F".
chkdsk Q: /F > press Enter

another example:
chkdsk D: /f
chkdsk E: /f
D or E is the letter or your SD drive.

Write protected memory card..sd card


There should be a little switch on your memory card reader, if it is facing down, your card is locked. Push it up and then you should be ready to go. :)
