Check if the player has a lock switch on one side. In that case use the switch to unlock the player.

If there is no lock switch, then the player may need formatting. Before formatting , try performing the operations here: iLo Mp3 Player Help is Here.

In some case the problem depends on the computer. In that case you find indications here: ILO Write protected - FixYa

    It is not an MP3 player, it is a USB stick and I cannot format it as it is write protected, so I need to remove write protection.

    Check if the USB stick has a lock switch on one side. If there is no lock switch, then the problem depends on the computer.

    Here is an utility to format a protected usb stick.

    If that does not work go to run->Type Regedit->search " StorageDevicePolicies" -->
    open Write Protected File and and change the value into " 0 ", click ~OK, then unplug and connect back USB memory stick.

    Repair_v2.9.1.1does not work with all the USB drives in commerce. Before attempting anything else, ensure that the problem is not the computer. Try connecting or formatting the USB on a different computer.

    OK I will try it on another computer.

    Let me know how it goes.


  • jcondon58 Jun 03, 2010

    Tried another computer and still says it cannot find the flash drive. The computer recognises the flash drive ok.
