    There should be a little switch in the side of the device or on the back that allows you to turn write protection on and off. If there is not... uhh... well that sucks.

    There are cases where this happens (and there is no switch) in which case there are about 100 different ways that MIGHT work.

    Best thing is to try and boot into safe mode and re-format from there.

    If you can, leave the make and model of the flash drive and I can look it up further (if none of that works).

    thanks to Silverwmoon!

    What he said. If it's one of those small flash drives, some will have a switch that goes to a locked or unlocked symbol. Keep it on the unlocked one for obvious reasons.



    If it's an external hard drive and you're not an admin trying to replace a file that someone wrote onto it while not being on the same account as you, then wtf? Get on an admin account and try that again. I get that problem all the time and the only way to really get that stuff working is by either getting on an admin account or just being lucky and finding a file that I didn't know that I wrote with the account I was using at the time.
