You can try the pen drive on another computer to see if the data is accessible.

Otherwise you may be able to get it working again if you format it. Formatting will erase anything that is already on it. Just right-click on it's icon in My Computer and chose format... If it still doesn't work after that then it has an electronic fault and will never work again. This can happen if the drive gets shocked by static electricity, or if it gets pulled out of the computer while it is reading or writting.

Removing Write Protection


Trouble:
In the past we had received so many problems from the readers who have a problem in copying files on their USB portable devices like pen drives, memory card and iPod etc.
usbdrivewriteprotected_thumb.gif
According to the mails we had received about this problem, people have seen the following errors when their thumbs drives, memory card etc becomes write protected.
  • Cannot copy files and folders, drive is write protected
  • Cannot format the drive, drive is write protected
  • The disk is write protected
  • Remove write protection or use another disk
  • Media is write protected
Some times people say that suddenly their drive become write protected and they are not able to delete any files and folder on the drive and also not able to copy new files and folder to USB portable drive.
Let’s see how can you remove write protection on your portable devices like pen drives, memory cards, iPod and other USB mass storage devices.
Fix:
Write Protection on any portable USB Device can be applied by the physical lock provided on the card adjuster or some times provided on the pen drives, so make sure to make your drive not write protected by moving the lock in right direction.
But even after moving the physical lock for write protection the problem can happen due to some virus action. This happens when some virus or script which applies the registry hack to make any drive write protect when connected to the computer, In that case follow the procedure below to remove write protection from your pen drive.
1. Open Start Menu >> Run, type regedit and press Enter, this will open the registry editor.
2. Navigate to the following path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies

Note: If the registry key StorageDevicePolicies key does not exist, you will need to create it
Download this batch file called add.bat from here, and double click after download the key will be automatically added to registry.

3. Double click the key WriteProtect in the right pane and set the value to 0 in the Value Data Box and press OK button disablewriteprotection_thumb.png

google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);

4. Exit Registry, restart your computer and then again re-connect your USB pen drive on your computer. That is it, done.
In case you still find an issue, please leave a comment below.

After a lot of user comments telling that the above method does not work for them, we tell you another method which you can follow to solve the “Pen Drive is Write Protected” problem.
If the above method does not work for you, follow the below steps:
1. Copy all the important data from this drive to your computer because this method will format the drive and erase all the data on the pen drive.
2. Now download the Apacer Formatting Utility, Unzip this utility to a folder on your hard disk, preferably on a folder on desktop screen for easy access (Do Not Try To Save it on pen drive). Keep your pen drive plugged in, and double click on the Start.bat file in the folder where you unzipped the above utility. This will start formatting your pen drive, wait till the formatting completes and the LED on your pen drive stops blinking. Remove your pen drive after than and plug it in again.
The above two steps will solve the problem. If you still face the problem, follow the below steps:
1. Goto Start > Run, type cmd and press enter, this will open command prompt.
2. Type the following command on the command prompt replacing X with the drive letter of your pen drive.
CHKDSK X: /F
The above two methods will help you fix the problem.
Note: For all those who are out of luck in fixing the problem with their portable drives, I would suggest you to get your drives checked or replaced by the manufacturer to fix it for you

My laptop is reading the pen drive, opening and operating all files but i'm not able to transfer any file to pen drive, although i can transfer files from pendrive to desktop. kindly provide the solution...


if there is no security password or write protect switch (this would be a small switch on the side of the pen drive) then it may be your pc not allowing cut and paste transfer. Try right-clicking on the file you wish to move to the pen drive, click "copy" then right click the pen drive icon and click"paste" this would copy the file to the drive instead of moving it. Moving the file is effectively, copying it to the drive and deleting the origional and if the origional has password or other forms of increased security/priority the pc won't allow it to be deleted or moved.
good luck.

My sandisk 8 gm is not open , when i try to open it as me that the disc drive is not formatted, do you want to formatte it now ?. what i will do. please help me becouse it inculded important office file...


The reason for which you are not able to open the pen drive is that Pen drive was formatted on a different computer with a different file system from a different OS and then the file was copied into it. And the computer on which you are trying to open the pen drive is having probably different OS which does not support that file system Pen drive was formatted with.

So all you have to do is to open the Pen drive on a computer that has OS same as on which file was copied into.

Thanks

Write protection


Get this program:
http://www.4shared.com/file/72797673/93a74bfa/UsbWriteProtect.html

You might need to get winrar from http://www.rarlab.com/
to open the rar file.

Extract all the files to a new folder, run the exe file and click the or disable Radio button and close the program.

Now remove the pen drive and plug it back in to the USB slot, Now open my computer and try to create a new folder in the pen drive, you can't. You get an error. That's what you wanted right? :-)

HTH,

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!!

Cannot Open Excel 2000 File.


I presume you are trying to open the document using the Recently Opened file list in Excel's "File" menu. If so, use the "Open" entry in the "File" menu instead and navigate to the pen drive from there - it may be that the drive letter has changed. Another possibility: use Windows Explorer (which can be accessed by double clicking on My Computer) to copy the file from the pen drive to the desktop and open it from there by double clicking on it. If that still doesn't work (but the copy worked OK) then right click on the file, click on "Properties" and see if the Read Only box is checked. If so, uncheck it.

And yet another possibility: after closing the file, did you pull the pen drive from the PC without telling Windows to eject it first? If you just remove the drive too quickly, without ejecting it first, the file can easily be corrupted.
