    Hi, all!

    I gave my flash drive to someone to give me some files, but since the files were copied to my flash drive, I have been unable to create new folders, copy files into, or save files on my flash drive. I checked all the settings I know of and have not found anything disabled on my flash drive.

    I am using windows XP, and a Cruzer 2 GB Micro flash drive.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Right-click the drive and see if it is Read-only.

    See if there is a "Read-Only" mode switch on the side.

    Those were the first two things I did, which is adding to the confusion. I even tried a restart, but I am still having the same problem. It's acting like it's "read-only" but all the settings are set so that new files should be able to be written on it.

    Do you have any other suggestions?
