  1. How do you remove USB write protection


    I copied files to a usb drive and transferred to another computer. When I went to delete the files on the USB Drive it said it was Write Protected. I attempted to reformat and received the same Write Protected message.


    Is there a way to remove the Write Protection from the USB Drive?

    :)

    How to Remove Write-Protection from an OEM USB Drive?


    I did all that. After I entered, "ATTRIBUTES DISK CLEAR READONLY", I didnt get a prompt stating that the write protect has been removed. But the command prompt stated that disk attributes cleared successfully.

    But when I tried to format the USB drive I get a pop up window stating that its still write-protected. Do you have any other suggestions?
