Hi- some pen drive has a little switch on the ends of it, make sure you have it toggle or positioned on the unlock, look on both ends if it has a black switch to unlock it, if there is none try to reformat the pen drive, reply for any concerns. Yhanks!!

My pen drive has become write protected and now I want to remove write protection from my pen drive,please help me.


Hi Sir.
Please look carefully at your usb pen-drive to see if there is a small switch on there somewhere that is used to lock and unlock the drive. perhaps you may have accidentally put it in the lock position.
If there is a laser pointer on the drive then using the laser pointer may have caused you to accidentally switch to the write protected mode. most drives have a lock/unlock switch on the pen-drive itself...unless it has a program installed on the drive that has encrypted and locked the drives read/write ability. Please let me know if you have success.
Thank you!

4 gb pen drive give write protected error


Save the contents in the pen drive (this process will delete all the files in ur pen drive) and then download this http://www.apacer.com/en/support/downloads/Repair_v2.9.1.8A.zip,unzip it n run.....click "Format". Make sure u have connected only the pen drive u wanna recover to computer,this tool is very blind n it doesnt allow u to choose which removable drive to format..it formats the first removable disk (seems so).

(WARNING: After running this low level format tool,
the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.
Therefore, data restoration will be impossible after using this utility!)

Removing write protection of USB pen drive


if u format ur pen drive. then use this step
-
Check out the registry under:

1)click on start button
2)clik on run dialog box
3)type regedit
4) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies.
The value 'WriteProtect' should be absent or set to '0' and when you try to format it you have to format it as FAT16

Good Luck!!
