can someone please help .............
ive just purchased a Kingmax memory stick its been installed but when I try to transfer pictures to the memory stick I get the message
"cannot copy pictures. the disc is write protected. remove the write protection or use another disc"
How do I remove the write protection ?
Thanks in anticipation

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.
