    I've got a 2 gb thumb drive (usb) that when I try to delete any files, I get the message the drive is "write protected". Remove the write protection, or use another disk. How do you remove the write protection? I didn't know it was write protected

    I installed "unlocker" and get the same message, telling me to unprotect the drive.
    How do I unprotect the drive?
