Mostly they have specific software for this, which you get when you buy the drive.. It's done through that. Just another thought, you can go via explore (right mouse click the start button) and then highlight the specific folder, then right mouse properties to see the read only option. If non of this helps, pls provide the brand/model of flash drive.

Won't read the flash drive


Make sure the flash drive will work on a normal computer. If it does try a different port on the xbox. If it works on the computer and not the xbox you might have to format the flash drive to work with the xbox Go here USB flash drive support for Xbox 360 or USB flash drive support for Xbox 360

I have Garmin nuvi 1300 GPS it keeps restarting. I've read that master reset can fix this problem. but how can I save all folders before restarting ?


a rebooting unit will most likely not be resolved by a reset. The problem is usually caused by a failed firmware or map upgrade. When the unit boots and can not find certain files or they are corrupted, the unit crashes. The unit must be flashed with a service firmware to gain access to the units flash drive so that the corrupted files can be replaced. Once access to the flash drive is obtained, the favorites can be backed up as well. Once the files are restored, then the unit can be flashed again with the factory standard firmware.

The pen drive indicates write protected and does not allow to write new files.


Three possible sources for this problem, and three separate solutions.
The following procedures assume your flash drive is assigned by MSDOS to drive E:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PROBLEM 1: Pen drive write-protect switch set
SOLUTION: move the tiny switch on the pen drive from the icon of a padlock locked
toward the icon of a padlock unlocked
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PROBLEM 2: MSDOS attribute set incorrectly on any/all files on pen drive
HOW TO DISPLAY CURRENT SETTING: START > Run... > cmd
C:\> E:
E:\> attrib /S /D

HOW TO FIX WRITE-PROTECTION PROBLEM: START > Run... > cmd
C:\> E:
E:\> attrib -r /S /D
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PROBLEM 3: REGISTRY set incorrectly (targeted by virus or other malware)
HOW TO DISPLAY CURRENT SETTING: START > Run...> cmd
regedit
display HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\ CurrentControlSet\Control \StorageDevicePolicies

The valid values for this are 0=Disabled (meaning READ/WRITE), and 1=Enabled (READ only)
HOW TO FIX WRITE-PROTECTION PROBLEM: START > Run... > cmd
regedit
set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies
to a value of 0 (Disabled)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A fourth way to "Fix" the write-protection problem would be to reFORMAT the flash drive, but
this "solution" merely resets the ATTRIB characteristic of the top-level directory of the
flash drive (while erasing all files on the flash drive), which is done better with the ATTRIB command,
and completely fails to address the possible write-protect switch or Registry issues.

Printer will read memory card, but i cannot access from pc


Files on a flash drive can be corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon and then click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flash drive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive you may need to format the flash drive, but you will lose the data stored on the flash drive.
If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: -

My Citizen Skyhawk Eco-Drive JR3000-51F Wrist Watch has stopped running. The analog hands have stopped at 12:00 and the left digital read out is flashing UTC and the right digital read out is flashing...


I had the same issue, and was able to reset it doing the following:

1. I let it recharge for at least a day in bright sunlight
2. I turned the selector to "CHR"
3. I pulled the crown all the way out.
4. I held both buttons down for 5 seconds (don't know if this was what did it.
5. I pushed the crown back in.

It did some funky hand movements stuff and then started off working.

Why does my overdrive light flash while i drive. I have a 1999 Ford Explorer.


It means the transmission has seen a fault and there will be a code set for the fault. Get the trouble codes read at an auto parts store such as AutoZone where they usually do it free and post the code if you can. It can reset its self every time you turn the vehicle off but it will not fix the problem. Could be a minor or a major problem so you don't know till the codes are read.

My 2gb kingston usb flash drive cannot open / read to any compute


There are several USB recovery programs available. While I don't endorse any one in particular, I tend to stay away from "free" ones, since I believe in the axiom "there's no such thing as a free lunch" since you don't know what's in it for them.

You could try this company, which advertises a free download (but I suspect they are really a shareware company so it's possible that they will want money for a more expansive version) which may make it possible to fix your drive in one instance at least.

If this data is important to you, it's probably worth spending 30 or 40 dollars to avoid a repeat.in the future, because USB drives get corrupted from time to time.

Anyway, here is the link:

Good Luck and If you find my assistance valuable, please give me a rating.
