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

Write Protection


Most cards have a switch on the side for protection. Pull the card, switch the switch, and put it back in.

Flash drives don't have a switch, but can be protected by an administrator, and un-protected the same way.

Un lock my pasword


Which is it a 2 gb cruzer or 1000 gb ??

USB flash drives are small, convenient storage drives. Place data such as pictures, photos and text on them quickly and efficiently and then carry it to another computer for copying to its hard drive.

A USB flash drive that has security enabled in it must be 'unlocked" before it can be used, which becomes difficult if the password has been lost. Because the security on the USB flash drive is rudimentary, a number of methods, from built-in software to optional programs, can remove the security so that the drive can be used.

Plug the USB connector of the USB flash drive into a USB port on the PC. Right-click on the icon of the USB flash drive when it appears on the desktop of a Windows-based computer. Select "Format" from the pop-up menu. Follow the command prompts in the window that appears to format the USB flash drive. Click "Done" in the confirmation window when it appears. The USB flash drive can now be used because the security has been removed from its storage space. Plug the USB connector of the USB flash drive into a USB port on the Mac. Double-click on the Mac's Disk Utility program, which comes free with the OS X operating system and is in the "Utilities" folder on the hard drive. Select the icon of the USB flash drive in the left column of the Disk Utility program's main screen. Select the "Erase" tab at the top of the Disk Utility program's main screen. Click on the "Format" check box on the right side of the Disk Utility program's main screen. Select "Fat (32)" from the drop down menu below the "Format" check box. Click "Format" at the bottom of the Disk Utility program's main screen. Click "Format", again, in the confirmation box that appears. Quit the Disk Utility program when the formatting is done. The USB flash drive can now be used because the security has been removed from its storage space. Download a password protection program to the computer's desktop; for example, the free TrueCrypt password protection program (see the link in Resources). Double-click on the icon of the password protection program when it has fully downloaded. Follow the command prompts to install the program onto the computer's hard drive. Restart the PC after the installation has been completed. Double-click on the password protection program to launch it. Wait for the password protection program to recognize the USB flash drive and display disc letters for the drives attached to the computer in the left column of its main program screen. Plug the USB connector of the USB flash drive into a USB port on the computer. Wait for a letter to appear in the left column of the password protection program's main screen. Use the mouse to click once on this letter which represents the USB flash drive. Click on the "Volume" or "Volume Tools" button to open a new window. Click on the "Next" button in the new window. Erase the password in the "Password" column of the new window that appears. Erase the password in the "Confirm password" column. Click on the "Next" button to go to a new screen. Select "Traveler Disk Setup" from the drop down menu below "Tools" at the top of the password protection screen. Click on the "Open Explorer window for mounted volume" check box in the new window that appears. Click the "Create" button at the bottom of the window. Click the "OK" button on the confirmation window when it appears. Quit the password protection program. Drag the icon of the USB flash drive to the Trash or right-click on it and select "Eject" from the pop-up menu. Remove the USB flash drive from the computer's USB port. Plug the connector of the USB flash drive back into the computer's USB port. Double-click on the icon of the USB flash drive when it appears on the desktop to open its window now that the security password has been removed. Plug the USB connector of the USB flash drive into a USB port on the PC. Go to "Start" and select "Run" from the pop-up menu. Enter "regedit" into the text column that appears and press the "enter" key to run the registry editor. Press the "Browse" button on the registry editor's main screen and navigate to the following path on the computer's hard drive: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies" Click "OK" to close the window. Double-click on the "WriteProtect" text that is in the right column of the registry editor's main screen. Enter "O" into the "Value Data box" in the window that appears. Click on the "OK" button to close the window. Quit the registry editor program. Restart the PC. Double-click on the icon of the USB flash drive that is on the desktop to open its window and access the files now that the security write protection has been removed. Hope this helps

Usb write protected


The problem isn't with write protection. The file system has become corrupt and unreadable, or at least a section of it. If you can't reformat it then it's likely dying or dead. At least you should be able to recover some of your data however...

Hi,
Does The Drive have a small tab on it, like a switch, which says Lock ?
If so Then you simply move the switch from lock to the opposite Position.
This is so to protect your data from being overwritten, switch is usually very small. And can easily be knocked into the Lock position ( Write-Protect )
