To make any Drive Work formatting is a necessary step. If you don’t do it then it will never work.

SOURCE: Memores 4G Mega Traveldrive doesn't read

Step one is try it on another computer. This will seperate issues....is it the drive or the USB port (hardware or software actully in both cases are possible.
Step two, if it works elsewhere, is to check under device manager, and reinstall the driver (if not embedded in the drive which most are)....both USB and the disk.
Step three is to download (again assuming it did not work) the disk diagnostics from Memorex (most drive manufacturers have a host of utilities and they may exist even for flash drives - they use them internal to their mfg operations as well). Check to see if it's good. It is possible that it just lost the embedded driver by the way in which case you need to put it back on the drive...haven't done that but assume it's possible and available.

Can give you more "stuff" to do but this will probably solve the problem....and I am guessing it died. If it did they are not expensive...and even cheaper if you really don't need 4 gb...few people do for personal and even work data.
Check at pricewatch.com (not a seller) for pricing. This site is used by GEEKS United for finding "stuff".

This gives you some options.....Tango

Tohono, sorry about the other confusing mis-interpretations of your problem. I'll try to help you understand.
First of all there is little reason for a write protect error on your drive unless you have either inadvertently set an file attribute incorrectly or a protected system file has been stored on the drive, or in some cases a virus wll write protect itself when it installs to a drive.
A simple fix for all the issues assuming you have no data you wish to save, is to format the flash drive only. Please don't format your C: partition, only the USB flash drive, okay.
More detailed instructions are below

Things to ponder before deleting

Rather then deleting them right away, try moving the "day the files were uploaded" to another drive. Then try accessing the files on your memorex. Do the files and folders open properly? There not corrupt? Has the memorex hdd drive recreated the folder you just moved? etc...

Once your satisfied that yes there are two copies then you could safely remove one.

Sounds like the HDD is failing or failed. Try removing side cover to your PC (Switched off and unplugged from power supply) remove the CD cable / plug it into the ext HDD (Dismantled) boot into Windows.
If the PC cannot read the drive then it is damaged with loss of all files. If you can read it, I suggest you transfer backed up files to your PC before it fails completely.

I deleted all the memory in the flash drive, its a 2 gb, but it tells me that theres only 41mgb in it.


Try emptying you trash on the computer that you deleted the information on. Or recycling bin depending on the type of computer. When you "delete" the information from the flash drive, it does not permanently delete it until the "Trash" is emptied.

My Memorex USB flash drive is write protected


t seems that your flash drive has some bad sectors since normally that's the error message you get when that happens, try to format your drive under disk management.
Note: your files will be erased if you format your flash drive.
If formatting your flash drive does not solve your problem I will advise you to contact Memorex technical support for better assistance, you can contact them at 1-877-363-6673

The only way to recover the data will be to try a company that specifically deals with Drive Data Recovery. This will not be cheap, so you will have to decide on the value of the data you are trying to retrieve

Hi, did you format the flash drive? If you are using windows, right click on the drive and select "Format...". You can repeat the operation a few times. If it's working, try to add your resume again. How old is the drive? Good luck!
