Write Protected USB Problem can’t open

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi Guys,

For your kind assistance on this please, it seems to be the problem with most of us these days and some of our readers who wanted to know the methods on how they can remove the Write Protected error from their USB drives like Pen drives and Memory. I have a 2 USB FLASH DRIVE and when I insert it on my computer it says," The drive is write protected". I can't open it rather format it.

Please help me.

Write Protected USB Problem can’t open


Hi Mamaming,

This seems to be a problem with your Operating Systems that are full of viruses. It is advisable to scan your Operating System and check it for errors, before you inserting any device like USB or even your cellular phone can be infected with the virus from the operating system. 
Solution 1:
Scan your Operating System
Use another PC that has scanned and guaranteed to have no virus on the system. 
Scan your infected USB drives if that computer finds viruses. 
Delete the viruses, If it is important file put it in the vault or heal it, depending on your virus scanner features.
Solution 2:
Operating Systems that are full of viruses
Solution 3:
Scan for infected USB drives
Reformat your USB.
