    I have a problem of a memory stick that has no manual write protect switch, but is being reported as write protected by Windows XP SP2 with all the latest updates. I can still read from the stick but cannot delete anything or replace anything. This pretty much renders it useless. I have tried to locate the vendor of this stick but cannot get any positive search results in Google using the device Id. Please help !

    What are the first two four digit numbers (PCI vendor and device ID)?
