    You could format the memory stick, that might help

    There might be a little switch on the side of your mem stick . If it is write protected your cannot format. Thats the whole point to write protection to stop you from over writing or erasing important stuff.

    Thank you for your assistance ....there wasn't a switch on the device, but after formatting the memory stick it worked ok.
