  • try this:
    plug it into your computer
    open the flash drive up like you would a folder or any other drive
    right click
    view properties
    Make sure the box for READ ONLY is NOT marked!

  • there should be a little thng on it you can slide back and forth...it should be in the not locked position. you may have to move it back and forth several times before you get it to work. I had them same problem with an sd card.

  • oh, and apparently the little lock slider is very tiny on flash drives so you may have just missed it.
