Click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you should see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
another thing you could try is to control panel administrive tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties tools computer management disc management if you can see your usb drive right click select properties tools check now tick in both boxes to scan for and repair/recover any bad sectors and automaticall fix any corrupt files
or you might tick in one box wait until it has finished then return at tick the other box

USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.

also
If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:

- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.
hope this helps

How to remove write protection from sony memory stick pro duo


There should be a small plastic catch on the side of the card which allows you to write protect the memory stick pro duo. It should have an image of a lock or say locked next to it, if it is locked you won't be able to write to it. Slide it to the unlocked position using a fingernail or a paperclip.

I have a small red Vernatin USB memory stick and forgot my pass word ! what can I do to get back the content ?


Always backup your files from the USB flash drive to a computer, since these removable drives will always either break, get lost, or get stolen. Sometimes a flash drive will prompt you for a password and there will be an option for giving a HINT. Click on this option and see if you left a hint on the drive. Passwords are there to prevent theives from stealing your personal information and data. There are supposedly applications that can read protected files without the password, do a search on the Internet for one of these.

Hii sir pls help me mine kingstone data traveler 2gb is write protected so how shall i remove write protected?


Copy all the files onto your 'C:' drive.
Spend $9 to buy a new 2GB USB memory-stick.
Copy the files to the new memory-stick.
Take a sledge-hammer to the old memory-stick -- to prevent anybody else from reading your files.

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.
