    Hey,

    I have a problem with my memory stick. I was downloading some files off the web onto the stick, but it seems that one of the files was corrupted. Now when I try to save anything to the stick, or delete anything, it tells me it is write protected. I've checked that it isn't, and flicked the write protection switch on and off several times.

    Tried to reformat the stick, no luck, told me it was write protected.

    Figuring its the corrupt file doing this so have tried to remove it with file removal software - Killer - (which has worked with stubborn undeletable files for me before) and have had no luck.

    Really want to get the stick working again. Any suggestions?

    Its a 256 mb stcik I bought off of play if that helps.

    Ta!

    Ah lol. I just hate it when people say memory stick, its means both. "thumb drive" or flash drive" is what i'm used to.

    anyway.
    Did you flash drive come with a CD or FLoppy disk? Something might be in there.
