Thanks,I could not locate the switch,it only have something on side for me to push the thumdrive out to be insert in the port,There are files containing virus and cannot be clear and it says media is write protected.Remove write protection and specify an action.So what am I suppose to do.

I have read the thumbdrive specs (at least some of its models), it has an encryption feature. Maybe, you have enabled such and you failed to enter the correct password whenever you want to access data in it. Please refer to your users manual to see if you have actually enabled such feature.

Like Jodel says above, post the make and model of the thumb drive. If possible, maybe a picture too...just because. I had a similar problem with a flash card. The write protect switch was broken off, I had to open it up to fix it.
