SOURCE: how to remove write protection from 8gb pen drive

hi,,

ok on the pen drive itself,, is a small switch with a lock on it at one end,, and an open lock on the other.. Its a small switch,, usually at the sides or back of it.. just push the switch in the other side to unlock it..

if there isnt one..

Regarding the write protect error, I believe its a common symptom for fake USBs. These are ones which say they have large capacity, but the seller placed a much smaller capacity chip. In your case, its possible that the pen drive's REAL capacity is only 256MB! Even the OS is fooled into thinking its a large capacity USB drive.

I saw some Sony branded USB's with a capacity of 32GB a few months ago. They are obviously fake.. but I do wonder how many people fell for them.

you can try formatting the drive ,, by

  • start
  • computer
  • right click on removable disc (your drive)
  • click format
well I hope that helps you out.. Other than the above there isnt much more that can be done..

Double click the write protect in the right pane and set the value to 0 in the value data box and press ok button.
restart your computer and again reconnect the pen drive on your computer.
