This is NOT any type of viral executable, nor a joke. I tried it on my "trash PC" first, and after it worked, I decided it was safe. I scanned it for viruses, and it checks out ok. I personally testify for this small zip file. I encourage everyone every where to spread the word about it.

Please check if there is any lock in your data traveler which is stopping you to format it.....but if you dont have any lock in your data traveler you can solve your problem through registry ....you have to make some changes into your windows registry in order to format your data traveler.....
1.
Check out if the USB drive has a small swich for write protection. 2.
Windows can write protect USB drives too. Check out the registry under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies.
The value 'WriteProtect' should be absent or set to '0'.
-------------------------------------------
Please let me know your feed-back.

click start control panel user accounts click on the administrators account if you have made one or you will have to create one in windows XP

click start right click on my computer select open
Right click the icon of your Hard Drive (It should be C:/ or something)
Click Properties in the menu that comes up
Click the Sharing tab
Click permissions
And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.


click start click on my computer to open you should see your drive

First, check if the card is inserted properly to the slot... push it firmly so that all nodes touches the inside of the card reader..
