Hello,
Can Any one suggest me what to do regarding the write protection removal.
I am using Toshiba U400 satellite series laptop with vista. specs are 3 gb ram, 230 gb hdd, core processor. when ever i am inserting any pendrive or mobile with mass storage through usb port, i can read all the files in those and even copy them to my laptop. but the problem is if i wanna copy stuff to my pendrive or any other mass storage device, a pop up window displaying the disk is write protected. remove write protection and try again.

could anyone find the solution and help me.

Hello sethu1986;

What make and model of USB flash drive?
Some have a physical switch for write protection.


You can see the small black switch on along the bottom edge of this USB flash drive.

If you use that USB flash drive on a different computer (like a PC) are you able to write files on the drive?

If the flash drive works normally on other laptops and PCs check your laptop and see if this applies to you.
