Problems in writing to Flash Voyager


Recommended Posts

Hi! I have recently purchased a Flash Voyager 1 GB. I needed big space to transfer big files between home and my work. Unfortunately my flash doesn't perform well.


When I try to tranfer big files I get the message "The disk cannot be written to because its write protected. Please remove the write protection from the volume CORSAIR in drive \Device\Harddisk1\DR3"


For example this happens when I try to move a 150MB file to my Corsair memory, although only 210MB of space is used on my flash drive.


I tried to format the module to FAT32, nothing changed. I get the same problem with every single XP PC I have tried (more than 4)

Do you have more than one USB device connected to the same port?

If so please try and use a port that only has our drie connected and I would try and format the drive from a command Prompt with this command.

Format (X:) /FS:FAT32 /U (X=Drive letter assigned to the flash drive.)

No, I don't have more than one device connected to the same port.

The only other device connected to my PC is a mouse, that is connected

to a different USB port.


I have already tried formatting my drive, nothing happened. Does this

mean I have a bad flash drive? Can I have it replaced?
