I have A-data my flash 8GB usb which write is protected please tell how i can Fix it ,,when i try to format the usb it say windows was unable to complete to format


The problem isn't with write protection. The file system has become corrupt and unreadable, or at least a section of it. If you can't reformat it then it's likely dying or dead. At least you should be able to recover some of your data however...

I cannot reformat my flash drive..always indicating" write protected" what shall i do to through reformat it?


Hi sampagac ,

There is right protect switch on many pen drives , a physical write protect switch which enables you to either allow writing on the disk or disallow writing on the disk.

All you need to do is toggle the right protect switch and you would be able to write files on your pen drive.
Please find an image below for more information.
Hope this helps ...:) your feedback would be appreciated.

Your best bet is to reformat your drive. Go to your My Computer and select the drive. Right-click on the drive and select Format. you can then reformat the drive. Be warned this does delete all of the Data on the drive.

Vibratim 4GB flash ram write protected not writable and i cant format it


It has password protection. Open My Computer on your PC, insert the USB drive, open the password file, enter your password, then select the option to remove password protection from the USB drive. If this does not work, contact Verbatim for a solution, these USB flash drives have lifetime warranties.

Transfer problems


Check if your USB Flash Drive is operating in "read-only mode". See if there's a "write-protect" switch on it and switch that to OFF.

Delete your file. If not, try reformatting it. Make sure to backup your own files first.
