I'm trying to copy some music files to my usb stick but it comes up with an error stating that the disk is write protected & that the write protection should be removed.

Please help me with the procedure of removing this protection.

Is their a sliding bar on the drive for protect / unprotect ?

Try formatting the drive.

If neither unprotect it, there is a registry tweak to disable write protect.
