some USB-drives have this little thing where you can switch between "read-only" and read+write. Have you checked this (if your drive has this "thing")?
yes, i've checked, there is none. another clue to it not being that problem is how when you first plug it in, it's normal, but after you start copying things it goes read only.

really? that sucks. mine was an 8gb drive that i got for ~$20, kinda cheap, but idk. it's a pqi U273, if that makes any difference.
i was thinking it might just be my messing around with formatting that it doesn't come up anymore, i wrecked it. i had
have another one that did that occasionally, too, but a format worked then. i think i might have to get another, or, well, i don't really have to (i have a 4gb one in my watch, and another 4gb one), but yeah, it's probably dead.
