thumb drive write protected

Post by racefan on Fri Dec 24, 2010 4:58 pm

my thumb drive shows right protected when I try to use it. The only thing I used it for was ready boost. It worked fine before that. I tried to format and several other options but nothing works. Anybody know a way to open it? Thanks!

Hi,
Use Unlocker to delete that file. It's free and you can download it anywhere from internet. Use Google for download link ;)

What is name of that drive ? I could give you Command Prompt option for formatting drive.

You should also try from Safe Mode, press F8 when you turn on computer and choose Safe Mode.
