Please give more details about the product, model number etc. It could be possible that the "SanDisk SecureAccess software" provided with the flash drive could be protecting your drive. Open the associated application for findign out how to turn off write protection.

How can i remove the write protection in my memory card?


on the microSD there is no write protection on the card itself, but it may be on the SD adaptor if you are using one.Some adaptors have a little toggle switch on the side that enables write protect.
If that is not the case then you have a faulty card, they show up as write protected when they go faulty.

Write protection won't allow me to download music


Hi,
On the left side of your SD card you have a micro switch on it and must be on the upper position. On the down position your SD card is write protected !

How do i remove the write protection on pny 8GB usb flash drive


Here is the answer from PNY.

Be warned, this is a low level format tool from them. What ever is on your flash drive will be erased.

I went exploring on these drives and found that when they start acting like they are write protected, it means that the drive corrupted. The low level format tool, will completely reformat that drive, and hopefully correct the problem.

They say it happens (usually) if you removed the drive from a computer, without using the safe eject USB function.

If this is a new flash drive, take it back to where you got it, and ask for a replacement.
