Tohono, sorry about the other confusing mis-interpretations of your problem. I'll try to help you understand.
First of all there is little reason for a write protect error on your drive unless you have either inadvertently set an file attribute incorrectly or a protected system file has been stored on the drive, or in some cases a virus wll write protect itself when it installs to a drive.
A simple fix for all the issues assuming you have no data you wish to save, is to format the flash drive only. Please don't format your C: partition, only the USB flash drive, okay.
More detailed instructions are below

Does The Drive have a small tab on it, like a switch, which says Lock ?
If so Then you simply move the switch from lock to the opposite Position.
This is so to protect your data from being overwritten, switch is usually very small. And can easily be knocked into the Lock position ( Write-Protect )

Need software for 512mb traveldrive using Windows 7

The TravelDrive is a "plug-and-play" device, and Windows 7 supports Plug-and-Play.
So, any device-drivers are included, and will automatically be used when you connect the TravelDrive.

What problems are you having? Symptoms? Error-messages? Does the TravelDrive work in some other computer? Does any other USB device work in the USB port that you are using for the TravelDrive?

My Memorex USB flash drive is write protected

t seems that your flash drive has some bad sectors since normally that's the error message you get when that happens, try to format your drive under disk management.
Note: your files will be erased if you format your flash drive.
If formatting your flash drive does not solve your problem I will advise you to contact Memorex technical support for better assistance, you can contact them at 1-877-363-6673

Things to ponder before deleting

Rather then deleting them right away, try moving the "day the files were uploaded" to another drive. Then try accessing the files on your memorex. Do the files and folders open properly? There not corrupt? Has the memorex hdd drive recreated the folder you just moved? etc...

Once your satisfied that yes there are two copies then you could safely remove one.
