    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.

    My verbatim USB 2 GB is write protected. I am not able to remove write protection. Please suggest to solve the problem.


    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.

    Remove the write protection on 2GB USB Kingston Data Traveler 100


    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.
