Sounds faulty

by MyLittleMansAnIdiot In reply to usb flash drive

Sounds like the lock switch on flash drive might be faulty. If it's a new flash drive, return it to your point of purchase. If not, throw it out and buy another. Flash drives are so cheap now days.

Select All

by meridenscrafts In reply to usb flash drive

I have never tried this, but I was wondering if you could just select all and delete
Say When you go to save in documents you select
Drive G: then open it up and everything is in there, you have the box open just highlight and delete it.

Have you tried that.

Drive is Write Protected

If it was a file attribute problem (ie. read only), it wouldn't bring up an error message on trying to format the drive. =)
