I have a Sandisk 4Gb micro sd card and it only reading 38.8mb I try to format and it saying turn off write protection


Turn off the write protection by sliding the key on the side.Most pen drives have these keys.If you dont have such keys , it may also be due to some virus .Please scan your pendrive totally and Even then if it is not working then your pendrive is corrupt

Problem regarding the write protection of pendrive


go onto this website and download the formatting software: http://www.apacer.com/en/products/Handy_Steno_HA202_downloads.htm
I had the same problem with an old 64MB jump drive. I did some hunting around on HWA as well as Googling other forums. The general agreement seemed to be that the drive was simply dead. I tried changing all the permissions, attrib in CMD, and even logging into Linux as "root" (the equivilent of Microsoft's "Administrator") to no avail. I was able to back the files up to another drive, and they regained their permission settings, but from what I read, the drive was simply dead.

Pendrive write protection removing


Hey, the transcend pen drives usually have a small switch on the side of it, ie to turn the write protect on and off, usually a small lock symbol on it, the problem with unreadable files names etc, could be a corrupt partition, i would suggest formatting the drive as long as you aint got any important information on it,

All the best
