I bought a Flash Drive (VM04L-16G USB Flash Disk Alloy-16GB) and then when I tried to copy a files in my flash drive it says that it is write-protection and should be remove.

I can format it. But, even though I can do it it keeps on saying that it is write-protected.

I thought there's a switch in it to lock and unlock it. but unfortunately, don't have.

So please help.

Is there a virus issue. ?

:(

Try changing it's drive letter in Disk Management:

Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management

Right-click the flash-drive volume ribbon and choose
"Change Drive Letter & Paths"
Click "Change" then select a new letter from the drop-down box.
