You will have to be the computer administrator to change any values on any hard drive

click start control panel user accounts you should see a box with the administrator and the guest account if you have made one click on the administrator this may vary depending on which operating system you have

click start click to open on my computer you should see your hard drive usually C: right click select properties there will be an array of options select the security tab option then advanced make sure you have full control in windows 7

click start control panel user accounts click on the administrators account if you have made one or you will have to create one in windows XP

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

Some flash drives have a manual setting available for turning on or off protection. If not, the on/off protection is et by a software switch. Check with the Flash drive maker for details on removing the protect function. This is not a DELL setting.

How do i remove parameters from a kanguru 4 g usb flash drive?


Which format fat32 or ntfs make sure its fat32 Indeed, FAT32 only supports files up to 4 GB. I ran into the same problem when copying an ~4.5 GB file to an 8 GB flash drive. There is a quicker solution that doesn't require you to reformat or lose data on the drive, using the command-line "convert" command. Suppose the flash drive is mounted to g:\. Open up a command window (start menu -> run -> cmd), and type: convert G: /FS:NTFS. Personally, I don't need the "security descriptors" on the flash drive file system, so I use the variant: convert G: /FS:NTFS /NoSecurity. The conversion should be very quick, and of course it has the benefit of not needing to move any files off the flash drive (since you don't need to reformat it). Hope this helps.

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.

Probably a damaged flash drive. Copy what you can to a new one and discard the damaged one but not in a landfill site! Use a recycling station.

Ive tried to drag songs from itunes & put them onto my sandisk card & tried to copy & paste it but it still dont work all it say is "remove th write-protection or use another disk" why is...


The write protection is the little slide on the side of the disk. You just need to slide it towards the side with the gold contacts. If you hold it so the label is rightside up, the switch should be near the upper left. You need to slide it up to unlock.

Sometimes you also get this error when the disk is bad or corrupted. you can reformat it and that will fix it. If it will not format i then you have to replace it.

Sounds like the switch.
