Some devices have a physical lock switch on the body of the drive itself. It may or may not be labeled as the lock. Switch it to the other position, and the write protection will be removed.

I removed my pendrive without safe remove and its next ady onwards i am not able to detect my pendrive can anybody suggest some remedy??


Assuming that you are using windows, go to drive management and see if the pendrive is detected.
If so, right-click on it and format it.
Or look for the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool and use it.

Displaying write protected while loading and deleting files


Your pendrive is infected with Autorun.inf virus
to remove this virus install malwarebytes (It is antimalware software)and scan your whole computer as well as your pendrive when you scaning finish remove all threats

IF the above method is not work

Try to format in other operating system like windows vista or in windows 7 because in vista and 7 you can force format your pendrive

Write protection in pen drives


hi,
could you mention the brand of the pen drive.
anyway for deleting the files . try this--> right click the file and click properties. now check you "read only" (ie. dis-select it ) and select file or folder is ready for archive.
now try to delete it.
hope it helps. and after knowing your brand and model of your pen drive more information can be given.

regards
