Write Protected

  fabrica 17:25 02 Apr 2008

I am transfering files to a new computer, and have used a 4GB USB Flash Memory Stick. Now I need to delete some Video files from the memory stick I get the message 'Write protected - remove write protection' How do I remove write protection and delete files , so I can continue moving files with the memory stick.
Any help please.

Some sticks had a very small slide-switch in the side - check to see if it is set to protect.

Some sticks have a small switch on the side to "write protect" the files.

You haven't accidently moved the write protect switch usually tiny and on the side of the stick........ or have you?
