Has it EVER worked to the full capacity ???

If not, chances are you have a FAKE (purchased off eBay from some foreign seller ???) - if not, take it back to the shop and demand a replacemnet / your money back.

There are THOUSANDS of fake drives going around = it's DEAD EASY to reprogram a low capacity drive to 'report' higher capacity (and hence increase it's value)

You are lucky yours goes to 512Mb .. a lot of '8 Gb' pen drives turn out to be reprogrammed 256Mb drives ...

Recently , you purchased a USB flash drive that you plan to use to store work-related files. When you attempt to store a file on the USB flash drive, the computer displays an error message indicating that...


You failed to mention what operating systems are involved. What does the work computer use as an operating system. The file system format of the USB may be say as an example ntfs windows while as a hypothetical the work computer could be apple o/s using a different file system or even maybe a unix system. You may need to reformat the usb stick to be the format file system used by the work computer. Also there could be a policy in place to prevent usb sticks working on work computers to protect intellectual property or to protect against virus transferance.

The message which you are facing while formatting your flash drive maybe be due to below reasons.
1) It could be due to virus. Try to scan your flash drive with your anti-virus and check.
2) Second reason would be when you connecting your flash drive it may include some autorun files which starts its own when you connect your flash drive and because that file is running it wont allow to be formatted, so try to delete all the files including in your flash drive and than try formatting.
or
There is right protect switch on many pen drives , a physical write protect switch which enables you to either allow writing on the disk or disallow writing on the disk.

All you need to do is toggle the right protect switch and you would be able to write files on your pen drive.
Please find an image below for more information.

I have a verbatim 4gb micro with a write protect error. I cannot delete the files, add more files or format the stick. Regards Mano


It has password protection. Open My Computer on your PC, insert the USB drive, open the password file, enter your password, then select the option to remove password protection from the USB drive. If this does not work, contact Verbatim for a solution, these USB flash drives have lifetime warranties.

Transcend JetFlash V60 16GB pen drive is write protected


Flash drives by default use the FAT32 file system. FAT32 has a limit of 4gb per file. So you could have four 4gb files on your pen drive, but no files bigger than about 4gb. You could use the NTFS format, but it's not suggested for flash drives since it reads/writes much more often than FAT and will make the drive lifetime MUCH shorter.

My 4Gb transcend cannot receive files(copy), it says write-protected


Hello,

Maybe your flash drive has this functionality the same as floppy diskette. And that is the write protect function. All you have to do, is to locate the adjustable part on your flash drive just like the diskette.

If you are still having issues, please do not hesitate to comment back.

I can't format my 2 gb transcend pen drive it saya write protect


Some usb drives/flash drives have a little switch that locks it and makes it read only to avoid accidentally losing important files. Try looking for a small switch somewhere on the case of the drive and switch it to the other position if you find it.
