If you are talking about the SD card, there's a tiny switch on the sideopposite the angled corner.
It must be slid towards the electrical contacts edge of the adapter. The other position is write protected.

Write Protection on any portable USB Device can be applied by the physical lock provided on the card adjuster or some times provided on the pen drives, so make sure to make your drive not write protected by moving the lock in right direction.

But even after moving the physical lock for write protection the problem can happen due to some virus action. This happens when some virus or script which applies the registry hack to make any drive write protect when connected to the computer, In that case follow the procedure below to remove write protection from your pen drive.

1. Open Start Menu >> Run, type regedit and press Enter, this will open the registry editor.

2. Navigate to the following path:


Note: If the registry key StorageDevicePolicies key does not exist, you will need to create it

Download this batch file called add.bat from here, and double click after download the key will be automatically added to registry.

3. Double click the key WriteProtect in the right pane and set the value to 0 in the Value Data Box and press OK button

4. Exit Registry, restart your computer and then again re-connect your USB pen drive on your computer. That is it, done.

Look for a small switch on the side that "locks" the card. flip the switch and try it again.

Kingston Combo... | Answered on Jan 04, 2011

A virus may have got to it :/ its hapened to me before. What you can do is reformat it. Right click on My Computer and see if the device is noticed in Disk Management under Storage. If so you can right click on it and hit format :) hope this helps. If you cant see it try it on another computer :)

You need free software to remove the passowrd for your USB. try this http://www.fileguru.com/apps/usb_disk_password_remove_sata/p3

Kingston Combo... | Answered on Nov 24, 2010

The best thing to do is to try it in a friends computer, remember to scan it with an anti-virus program if it is detected. Otherwise it is possible that the USB flash drive has malfunctioned or needs to be reformatted. Hand it over to a PC technician maybe he/she can recover the information on it. Might be time to purchase a new one as they do wear out.


Kingston Combo... | Answered on Nov 15, 2010

Hi there,

Try to see if there is a small tab on your USB's side that can be adjusted either up and down; that is the write protect tab.

Please let me know if you find this assistance helpful. Thank you for using FIxYa.

Format the drive as there can be errors or virus in the memory.
Once done check if the new files can be stored.
