I've got a 128MB key which worked up to now and suddenly I can't take anything off it or add anything to it. I looked in tools, and options but can not find the solution. Can anyone help please.

Do you need any of the data on it? If not, you may be able to format it.

I assume you are referring to a USB 'pen drive' type device.

Someof these have a 'lock' switch on the side I believe.

Thanks Fellsider, I forgot that the thing works like a floppy. That is the right solution. I feel kind of stupid.
