Ask Computer Hardware Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you. Let's get started!
On the flash drive itself, you will see a sliding lock option. Make sure it is not set to locked otherwise you cannot copy to it.
The flash drive is inserted the same way whether it is locked or unlocked.
Thank you for confirming -- I took a look at your exact model flash drive and it does not have the locking feature.
If you are experiencing the write protection error it means that your flash drive is starting to become corrupt. I would suggest that you copy all the files off the flash drive onto your computer.
Does the flash drive have any files on it?
Thank you for confirming -- I would suggest returning the flash drive to the store for a replacement.
Amazon is actually really easy to return items to -- They take back almost anything and they will even offer to send you a replacement before sending back the item.
