Usually usb sticks don't have a write protect option. But some models that do have that option. Look for a small switch on your usb stick.

Write protection


Write protection means you can view the information stored in it but you can't write and transfer the information to it.
For removing the write protection follow the below mentioned steps:
1. Right click on the USB stick
2. Go to properties and uncheck the read only or write only protection option.

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.
