Unable to drag and drop - disc is write protected

  curly 16:10 26 Mar 2004

I am trying to drag and drop files to a Flash Disc but the computer will not allow me saying that the disc is 'write protected'. I was able to achieve the process previuosly. How do I change the disc to allow drag and drop?

Is there a write protect switch on the flash drive? (usually on the end) If so, you could have accidentally switched it.

mine has a small bleb cunningly fitted on the sharp edge of the thing.......It is only a simple slide switch.

Thank you very much. It is exactly as you described. I must put on my reading glasses next time!!
