Hi All.
I have a Lexor SDHC flash drive, 16GB. It is write protected, how do I remove the protection so that I can format it & use it again?. Yes it IS mine. PJ

Check to see if theres a tiny lock tab, generally on the side of them, it may be in the lock position, if it is, then slide to unlocked.

If there are no tabs, then its possible the drive "may" have failed ( it happens) :(

It may have a physical little write protect switch you can slide over to un protect it. If not try right clicking the drive and choosing properties and see if there's an option there, assuming you can put it in a PC.

Edit: Wainui beat me, probably while I was retyping mine. Stupid caps lock.
