If it says the drive is write protected it means either it was formatted this way ..and for to see if it is so click right on it ..and choose properties and in there take a look not to be ticked on write protected ..or if it is selected read only ..remove the mark and click apply ..
If this is not a case..check the files inside not to have such a issue ..delete files one by one ..and check the ones that do not want to remove themselves..and do just like I suggested .In the last resort ..try to download and install remove on boot program ...and select tye files into the program ..and delete them on boot if they are write protected..
The action itself is to click right on the file that can not be deleted...and select to remove at next boot ..(the program will add this option on the menu ) and once selected all ..just restart the computer ..
here is the link for the program ..but lets hope it will not be needed..
After all files are removed..open the flash drive folder and under organize,,folder and search options ..click on view and select to see hidden folders ..and if there are any delete them too ..just to be sure ..
Last ..just click right on the drive's icon ..and select format ..select the options for to do that and go for it ..
here is the program I mentioned..

Found this on Kingston site, doesn't help much but may point you in the right direction.

Unfortunately this unit does not have any security or write protection feature. If you receive a write protection message with this drive, check for the following:

  1. Verify that you are allowed to write to removable storage devices. There may be a security setting in the OS that disables write access to removable storage devices.
  2. Make sure you have not enabled write protection on the drive by using a third party software.
  3. If none of the above apply, the drive may be defective.

Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type CHKDSK q: /F
where 'q:' is the drive-letter assigned by Windows to your Kingston.
Press Enter.
When "check-disk" has completed, Windows will remote the "write-protect".

My Kingston 2GB USB is write protected. i dont know how to remove it coz i cant delete copy or format it


Check the USB device to see if there is a switch that makes it write protected. If so, change it back. If you're still having problems, it's probably defective.

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.

Not able to copy more than 1GB into 2GB Kingston SD card


Hi 1123sun,

Copy your files off the card. Then Format the card and select FAT32 file system. After the format is done try the card again and see if you can copy more files to it.

Removing write protection of USB pen drive


if u format ur pen drive. then use this step
-
Check out the registry under:

1)click on start button
2)clik on run dialog box
3)type regedit
4) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies.
The value 'WriteProtect' should be absent or set to '0' and when you try to format it you have to format it as FAT16

Good Luck!!
