Kingston DataTraveler G2 32GB


As you can see, it doesn't have any switch. I tried this:
My USB Flash device is write protected

How to remove a write protection from your USB memory Stick if there is no Write protection ON or OFF button or tab:

1. Shutdown your computer or laptop
2. Insert USB Memory Stick into your laptop or Computer
3. Turn on computer and then immediately start pressing (F8) key then Advanced Boot Options screen will come up
4. Select Safe Mode with Command Prompt
5. After loading files if your USB Memory Stick drive letter is (G) for example then write as
6. C:\windows\system32>G: and press enter
7. G:\>format G: and press enter
8. If ask you (Y/N) then press (Y) and press enter
9. Now a full format will start which remove write protection from USB Memory Stick.


But I had "Insert new disk for drive G...
press ENTER

I press enter, it says the USB's capacity then it says it's write protected.
Any ideas?
