Welcome to FixYa!


Here's 3 solutions that is proven to work:


• First of all try to locate a small switch (if any, that you may have not noticed) at some place on the drive. This is the prime reason for this error. If there is one, switch it to the other side to turn the protection off.

• If it does not have a switch, download a tool to fix it in this link http://www.box.net/shared/9hgp81ndgs Download it, unzip and run it.


• 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.

Hope any of the methods listed above solves your problem.
Thank you for using FixYa, keep me posted!

HI, I HAVE A USB MEMORY 256 MB


You can try downloading DriverDetective from this website. Run the software with the UBS device inserted, and it should be able to find and download the correct driver.

However most USB Memory sticks don't need any drivers to run. Try formatting the drive from Windows Explorer with the same File System your local disk c: uses.
