There is a little white tab to the left hand side of the disk (as you look at te label side), slide it to the opposite direction of where it is, and try again.

The Write protection tab is in the lock position - it needs to be unlocked to transfer anything to it.

Hello Sean,

Please try to format the SD card using the SD Formatter 3.0 for SD/SDHC/SDXC. The software formats all SD memory cards, SDHC memory cards.

Virus affacted. cannot clean. so i want to format it. Cannot format it saying the disk is right protected. Help me format or clean this USB.


Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

You can scan the flash drive with your virus protection. If this doesn't work, then right click on the flash drive, choose properties and uncheck "read only" on the bottom security tab.

This will give you back the admin rights to reformat.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

I used Windows to format 4gb memory stick PRODuo, now what?


your 4gb drive has definately a partition virus.
i recommend u to use net protector a virus removal software to tackle this problem
may be demo version will not remove the virus but clean any malware and inform you about the virus.no other software may help as this 4 gb has a partition virus and there is an unseen partition (hidden one) on the drive... which the net protector will delete.

It's Damage already, buy a new one. For this effort you have take, its no longer to use.
I have the same MICROSD of yours, and its keeps telling format then you it don't. And then I try to another its all the same.

Flash drive write protected? can't add files


This seems to be the problem of most of us these days and some of our readers who wanted to know the methods how they can remove the Write Protected error from their USB drives like Pen Drives and memory cards.


What is Write Protected error and why it happens?
In the Write Protected error, we can’t write or copy any data in our flash drives and even can’t format the drive.
There are many reasons that cause this problem, let’s see solutions of them.
Solutions:
• First of all try to locate a small switch (if any, that you may have not noticed) at some place on the drive or memory card reader. This is the prime reason for this error. If there is one, switch it to the other side to turn the protection off.
• Yes I know this problem is also occurring these days without this switch but not to worry. Just download this helpful software form here

http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Hard-Disk-Utils/HDD-Low-Level-Format-Tool.shtml

and run it to execute a “low-level format” on the drive. This software is quite handy and may take few attempts to actually remove the error.
• The problem can also be caused by some virus activity so just get it scanned by some updated good anti virus which may solve your problem.
• BUT if none of the methods listed above solves your problem then your pen drive might have gone corrupted, so just get it replaced.
Hope any of the methods listed above solves your problem.
Update 1:
After the low level format, you may need to “Partition the drive“. Dont worry, partitioning a pen drive means allocating it its File System and Cluster Size that was lost after the Low Level Format.
For that:
  1. Run diskmgmt.msc in Run.
  2. In the disk management window, select the pen drive, right click on it and click on Format.
  3. Now choose the File System and Allocation Unit Size and do not check the boxes below.


Click OK and the drive will be reusable after this.
Update 2 (Better Solution):
Follow the steps in this post and just put the value 0 (zero) in step 5.
This will surely solve your problem now.
