'Write-protected'

Ok would LOVE someone to explain this one:

I stuck a few mp3s onto a USB stick to transfer rom my PC to my Laptop, yet cannot delete them as it now comes up 'wright-protected'!! I was transferring loads then deleting them from the stick then sticking more on it, why has it suddenly decided to do this now?! More to the point how can I now 'un-write protect' the file/s so that I can delete them?!!

SO do we think the pen has broken? Or is there a way I can 'un-write' the disk?

If there's nothing you want in the stick anymore try formatting it to get rid of them.

Have you rebooted - it may just mean that a file is locked open somewhere by accident.

Often when you take a file off a non-writeable media like a CD it carries over the 'write protect' attribute.

If you right click on a file and select Properties you need to check if the 'read only' attribute is ticked.

You can take the read-only attribute off a few different ways...

the best way is to do it in 'DOS', find the drive letter of your USB stick (e.g. click on My Computer) and do a Start --> Run --> cmd

then type "CD E:\" (where E is the drive letter of your pen thingy)

and type

attrib *.* -r /s/d
