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

Hello there!

Well somehow data on your usb flash is write protected, maybe before you locked part of your usb pen drive and losted that encryptor software on your usb.

Solution is next, find any software for formatting usb flash memory sticks, force format it and there you go. Thats about it! =)
