How do I remove write protection from a USB memory stick?

I have an HP 4GB memory stick which has worked O.K. in the past. Now it claims to be write protected but I have done nothing to invoke write protection

    I suggest you open disk management, and see if file system is ok, and partition is healthy.

    Right click My Computer > Manage > disk Management.
  2. Did you find the solution? i have just experienced the same problem right now

    Yes, I have done that and it says 3.99 GB FAT 32 Healthy. That's fine but I still have a memory stick claiming to be write protected and I cannot find out how to get rid of it !
