Do you have one of the memory sticks that have a little switch to prevent accidental erasure, if so check that its not locked.

Sorry ignore what I said I wasn't thinking of a Sony memory stick for a camera.

Just done a search on here and found the solution to memory stick/mp3 problem, suddenly could no longer delete files.
Yep there was a lock button.
