Does it have a hold button on it?

Some pen drive style players have a small locking button to prevent accidental overwrite. Does this model have one and is it in the correct position?

I have tried the hold button in both positions it makes no difference

Thanks to all it must have been the hold button I kept moving it to each setting and it reformatted it seems OK now maybe a dirty switch
