My Memorex USB flash drive is write protected


t seems that your flash drive has some bad sectors since normally that's the error message you get when that happens, try to format your drive under disk management.
Note: your files will be erased if you format your flash drive.
If formatting your flash drive does not solve your problem I will advise you to contact Memorex technical support for better assistance, you can contact them at 1-877-363-6673

USB flash drive write protection


Most USB drives don't have a Write Protection switch, but if yours does, then move the slider.

If it doesn't have a switch, the only way to use the drive is to format the drive. First, note the drive letter, such as E, F G for your drive. *** BE CAREFUL *** This will remove all files. Go to Windows Explorer, note the drive letter , Right-click and select Format. Again, BE CAREFUL not to format any other drive, just your removable USB drive.

Hope this helps.

My usb drive is write protected i cant format it pls help....


Have you tried doing it from another PC? If the same problem persists, look closely at your drive and check for a tiny switch that has a lock label on it- it maybe switched to the lock position. Most USB drives has this switch for write protection.

Unable to format the cruser pendrive


Far too often these little things have an almost invisible read/write protect button on them. Look carefully, over the entire surface of the USB Flash Drive. You might have this switch turned to Write Protect, which means there is nothing you can do, until you turn it the other way, and allow the device to be written to.

Cheers!
