On the flash disk is a button on the left or on the right. That is the write protection. Push it or pull it.

    Remove the write protection on 2GB USB Kingston Data Traveler 100


    Found this on Kingston site, doesn't help much but may point you in the right direction.

    Unfortunately this unit does not have any security or write protection feature. If you receive a write protection message with this drive, check for the following:
    1. Verify that you are allowed to write to removable storage devices. There may be a security setting in the OS that disables write access to removable storage devices.
    2. Make sure you have not enabled write protection on the drive by using a third party software.
    3. If none of the above apply, the drive may be defective.

    Remove Write Protection


    Try this,
    1.
    Check out if the USB drive has a small swich for write protection. If its there try toggling the switch.

    2.
    Windows can all write protect flash drives. Check out this registry path,

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies.

    You may find a key here on the right side by the name 'WriteProtect'. If it's not there this would not be the cause of problem. If it's there, make sure that the value is 0.

    Please let me know if this does'nt work.

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


    Here is the answer from PNY.
    http://www2.pny.com/support/support_single_faq_viewer.aspx?ArticleID=1415&RootSectionID=1057

    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.
