Question about Kingston (DTIU3/2GB) 2 GB USB Hard Drive
• First of all try to locate a small switch (if any, that you may have not noticed) at some place on the drive or memory card reader. This is the prime reason for this error. If there is one, switch it to the other side to turn the protection off.
• Yes I know this problem is also occurring these days without this switch but not to worry. Just download this helpful software from http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Hard-Disk-Utils/HDD-Low-Level-Format-Tool.shtml and run it to execute a "low-level format" on the drive. This software is quite handy and may take few attempts to actually remove the error.
• The problem can also be caused by some virus activity so just get it scanned by some updated good anti virus which may solve your problem.
If you do low level format, you may have to do a normal formatting after that. Just right click on the pen drive and select format. In the next screen accept the existing settings and click ok.
If these solutions doesn't work you have to edit registry settings. Find "StorageDevicePolicies" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\. There may be a DWORD "Write Protect. Set the value to "0". This ahould work.
