Locked out memory stick

  Strawballs 23:04 25 Jul 06

A friend at work's daughter lent her memory stick to a friend and when she got it back she has been locked out and unable to access it but her friend does not know what she has done.

Any suggestions would be gratefully recieved.

Just format it but you lose all on it

What type of memory stick is it? USB, Memory Stick Pro, etc?

It would also help to know what the exact error message is that comes up.

If it's a usb memory stick (key drive) check the little switch on the side hasn't been switched over. Mine have open padlock and a closed padlock symbols on the side.

Cheers Chris.
