Download this small file:

http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/regs_edits/writeenable.reg

Save the file on your desktop. Then double click the writeenable.reg file and click on Yes when Windows asks if yo u want to write to registry.

That;s it. Now you can try to create a new folder on your usb drive and it should be created. That means it's now normal.

    You will need to remove the USB and re-plug it or may be a reboot is needed before it will work normally.

My memory stick is write protected...i cant add/delete files.


CHECK if it is not physically protected, a small button/switch might be on the stick!
THEN, try any other flash drive or memmory stick to locate the target problem (memorry stick, or usb port mulfunction or even security/driver issue).

PLUS, there are some programes that might protect flash drives, check if u have any, and uninstall them, and make sure u have deleted ther HIDDEN system files located on the stick!

gd luck.
