I have a Dane Elec 4gb usb stick and can't get it to work. At first, I couldn't copy anything onto it as it kept saying drive is write protected. I then used Partition Wizard and formatted everything on it. I then tried to create a partition and followed the steps accordingly but then it reverted back to 'unallocated' and the drive didn't display FAT 32 or NTFS. I then went into 'My Computer' and when I clicked onto the usb drive Removable Disk X:(I changed the letter from G:) it says 'Please insert a disk into drive X'. I right clicked properties and got. File System Unknown, Used Space 0 bytes Free Space 0 bytes. Can anyone help?? .
I followed all the steps from 'robinoffloxley' and thought the problem was solved. However, when I tried to copy a folder onto my flash drive I got the message ' disk is write protected...remove the write protection or use another disk'. I went into Regedit, StorageDevicePolicies and changed the value to decimal but to no avail. Does anyone have another solution to remove write protection? This is really doing my head in!
