Question about External Drives
i am not able to delete files from my pendrive nor am i able to format. every time i try to delete or format, a window pops up saying that ur pendrive is write protected and asks to remove the write protection. as such i have not found any write protection enabling or disabling method. please guide in this problem
Write Protection error occurs in PenDrives, when the files / file system gets corrupted.
But, I haven't find a way to solve this...
You can try CHKDSK command from dos command prompt... i may detect some corrupted files, but still unable to fix it.

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.
