More about : removing write protection englishbob May 14, 2010 8:46:57 AM Is there not a little switch on the side to remove write protection, maybe with the word "Lock" next to it? I've seen these on SD cards and old USB thumb drives. eb foscooter a c 97 G Storage May 14, 2010 8:38:17 PM Seems to be a very common problem. I've seen other threads about the same thing. Let me check... Here is a big old long thread about the topic: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/77357-45-remove-write-protection-memory-stick Basiclly it says to find the thumb drive in "My Computer", right-click on the device, and uncheck the "read-only" box.
