Hi Diemmess. There is no slide switch on the side. of stick. It is a PC line stick.

Does your computer actually say the pen is write protected?

If so I'm out of my depth here unless the drive itself is faulty.

I emphasise I'm only guessing but you could try and format the drive.

Virtually everytime this question is asked, the person concerned has missed the write protect switch on the flash drive, they can be very small and well hidden in the design of the drive.
