Write protected and locked files on PNY Optima 2 GB flashdrive

I have a PNY Optima 2GB. All of my files that I have put on the Flashdrive are locked and I cannot save more files, erase or format the drive. Do you have a solution to erase or format this drive for further use. My email address is: temple57@sbcglobal.net

Perhaps it has not been prepped, eg: not formated to use. Format it with fat32 file system using formatting software from the manufacturer. Also, make sure the movie file does not exceed 16 GB.

I am trying to save to my NEW PNY usb flashdrive and it keeps telling me it's write protected. There is NO switch or anything to unprotect this thing. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?


Depending on what you are trying to save, the file or files might be write protected. If it is just music, it should transfer fine. Assuming your using a PC, if you right click on the file your trying to transfer and click properties, it will have options such as "read only" or "hidden", make sure none of those are checked. You can also do the same for your new flashdrive if you view that drive in "My Computer" from the start tab.
Good luck, hopefully that's the problem.
