Media is write protected

Hi All,
I have a USB2 1gb. Key drive. I have a couple of files on it now and want to delete them and add another file, But it comes up with the error message "The Media is write protected"
How do I unprotect it? I do not remember protecting it, I have tried to format it but it comes up with the same error message.
Thank You

Right click, Properties?

Some of these things have a small write protec switch you may have caught accidently.

Thank You all,
It was a lock switch on the key drive.
