Most usb flash drives have a little switch on them that enables/disables writing to the drive
cant tell you where on yours it is as you did not give the model, but there should be a switch
flip it to the other end, try again

Delete autorun inf virus 4gb


If you have a autorun.inf virus on your memory card/USB stick the anti virus software on your PC may not allow access in order to stop it from spreading.

First you need to disable autorun feature on Windows operating system :

Follow steps in link :

http://www.redmondpie.com/how-to-disable-autorun-autoplay-in-windows-7-and-windows-8/

After disabling the feature you will have access to your memory card/USB stick. The next step is to delete autorun.inf virus file hidden on your memory card/USB stick. But first you need to make the hidden virus file visible.

Follow steps in link to show hidden system files :

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/show-hidden-files-in-windows-7/

Now navigate to your memory card/USB stick you should see the autorun.inf file - DELETE IT.

(If it doesnt allow you to delete it - restart the PC in safe mode by pressing F8 on start up and choosing safe mode and try again)

Back up your files on the memory stick/USB stick to your PC and to make sure the virus is gone from the memory stick/USB format it using your PC.

Dont to forget re-hide your system files to prevent accidental deletion.

Good luck!

My photos were deleted are they gone permanently


You can often successfully recover deleted photos from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it becomes too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.
If the deleted files are on a memory card or USB memory stick, just don't save any new files to it.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some file recovery software. Recommended this data recovery as it saved my life many times.

Check for a write protect switch. If the cad doesn't have one, you might have a problem with the connectors.

My memory stick is write protected...i cant add/delete files.


CHECK if it is not physically protected, a small button/switch might be on the stick!
THEN, try any other flash drive or memmory stick to locate the target problem (memorry stick, or usb port mulfunction or even security/driver issue).

PLUS, there are some programes that might protect flash drives, check if u have any, and uninstall them, and make sure u have deleted ther HIDDEN system files located on the stick!

gd luck.

Can you delete files from the flash drive once you have transfered them from one P.C to another? Thus freeing up the space. If so how?


Yes, just like you would any other file. Go in to My Computer and in to your flash drive. Right click the file you want to get rid of and click delete.

-OR-

Instead of copying and pasting from the memory stick you can cut and paste. This moves the files from the stick to your computer.

When I plug in my Lexar memory stick, and try to save a file to the removable drive (J) which is the memory stick file...it says I can't because it doesn't exist. Help?


Hi, Neil.

Look in "My Computer" to see if another drive letter was created when your memory stick was plugged in. Sometimes, another drive letter is created. Try dragging and dropping the file you want to save.

In case you are not aware, in each computer, the drive letter for a memory stick could be different, depending how a computer is set up.

Also, try in another computer to see how your memory stick works (if it's OK).

Hope this helps.
