Hi!
I have been using a 4GB Toshiba USB flash drive on my computer & also on USB ports stereos. All of a sudden the drive has started appearing write protected and I cannot add or delete any files on the drive. This is very surprising as I havent found any answer as to how can I remove the write protect thing and use my drive normally. The other thing is that the drive has no write protection switch to control it. Please i really need your help.
Either help me to remove it or instruct me to do other possible solutions..

Try looking at the drive with something like Gparted.
There is a section where it tells you what flags are set, you might be able to change the permision there.
I must admit I have had problems with Toshiba USB drives, I avoid them now.
