  • RandomAccess Feb 23, 2009

    My File System is Now In RAW and not FAT32!! WHAT!!? There is no Right Click Properties to Uncheck a Read Only Box because there are no Boxes under properties for This Disk (all others there is) It's a PNY Attache 4GB and they have a LOW LEVEL Format Link that doesn't connect to anything except their homepage. Zero Help from them regarding their product.

    I have a basic player, i.e., without microSD card, I have  just purchased it. 
    When I erroneously added .vob files it copied to the main memory but does not delete saying it is write-protected. Can anyone help me please to tide over the problem?

I'm trying to spread the news on how I fixed mine just this morning with the same problem. I can't believe how many people have the same problem.

I have heard to format--didn't work for me. I have heard to switch the write-protection button on the side--mine doesn't have one.
I heard to make sure your mp3 is not in 'pause' or 'hold' mode--THAT WORKED FOR ME! It was so simple. I had been messing with the buttons so much I must have put it in pause. Please try it. Good luck.

Yes people please help my zen stone plus doesn't want to transfer any more and i dont think i have a hold button. If you know a simple way of removing the write-protection without installing anything or whatever that would be great.

To whom it may concern,

I have a 2 GB PNY attaché Optima Pro flash drive. When I try to save anything on the flash drive it tells me that it is right protected. I hate to destroy it and throw it away, because it's a good flash drive. I'm trying to get an answer from somebody on how to fix it. If you give me an answer. I really would appreciate it very much.

I think a solution to all this is that if we all work as a team to solve this, it can be easy for all of us because everyone can come with an idea and we can see what we can do to that issue and it can be easy for eveyone to decide if it is a good idea or should we all try something else because if you just sit back and do nothing, none of your problems will be solved because you are not asking for any help from any one, so guys if you think that this story is useless just email me to tell me that is it good or not

SOURCE: how to remove write protected

There must be a little tab somewhere, if you move it you unlock the write protection.
Sometimes it has a little padlock sign.

How to remove write protect on my usb flash drive


Maybe you are infected with a virus. Run CMD on rrun command or get to run the Windows Dos Prompt. Goto flash drive drive letter. Then type DIR/AH, this will show you list of hidden files in your flash drive usually if you get an autorun.inf you are infected with a virus. Type TYPE AUTORUN.INF with the space in between.This will show you the script if it will run an exe command usually untrusted one. Usually the autorun.inf and the linked exe is attributed to be hidden, system, and read only.

If the files in your flash drive is not so important you can try to delete the autorun.inf only. But you will gonna do this first. In its drive letter type ATTRIB -H -R -S AUTORUN.INF hit enter. Then type DEL AUTORUN.INF. trying to access the flash drive in windows screen you can get that something is cannot be found. But you could actually delete and load files into it. Or try to access the drive rightclicking it then select EXPLORE.

Hope this help. Post comments if this does not help.

USB Write Protection Hi, I am trying to copy/delet files from/to a USB stick. window says: " The disk cannot be written to because it is write protected. Please remove the write protection from volume USB...


As you said that there is no switch to lock and unlock usb stick so if this is the case than download the file below
Use the Registry Hack to Disable Writing to USB Drives
Here is the link .just download the zip folder and after opening the folder you will find a file just double click on it..
This will solve the write protect error definitely

Make sure your mp3 "HOLD" option is not on!
Its really as simple as that. The hold button 'protects' the files.
