Are you sure it has no side-switch, they are very tiny and not easy to see. What make/size is your flash-drive.

it is a `pnk attache 2gb` and no obvious sign of a slide switch

Sorry to be so late getting back to you - I have had a look at the specs for the drive, there is obviously no actual side-switch. So the only thing I can suggest is for you to try it in any other USB port, this does sometimes make a difference. Other than that, if it is a recent purchase (and the change of USB port does not help) then I would try for an exchange as it would appear to be faulty.

try right click the drive then properties to see if it will let you change the attributes
